Since 75% of the EC's voting members were present, the EC was quorate for this meeting.
The EC Standing Rules state the following penalties for non-attendance at EC meetings (note that those who participate in face-to-face meetings by phone are officially counted as absent):
Missing two meetings in a row results in a loss of voting privileges until two consecutive meetings have been attended.
Missing five meetings in a row, or missing two-thirds of the meetings in any consecutive 12-month period results in loss of the EC seat.
There were no changes in voting status as a result of this meeting.
There are no personnel changes to report.
Heather presented the usual EC stats (see the presentation for details). Steve Wallin previously requested that we add the JSR 376 Public Review Reconsideration Ballot to the agenda since the ballot was open to review any outstanding items. David Blevins asked Eclipse if their compiler team had enough documentation to ensure an implementation. Wayne confirmed the team is fully engaged, and although not ideal, had enough documentation. Heather reminded EC Members that this is the Public Review ballot, and there will still be a Final Approval Ballot before Final Release.
Heather welcomed the new EC Members filling the two ratified seats - ARM and JetBrains.
Heather reminded EC Members to participate in the poll for 2018 face to face locations and dates (see the presentation for details).
