EC stats

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.

Special Election

Heather welcomed the new EC Members filling the two ratified seats - ARM and JetBrains.
