EC Elections

EC Stats

Heather presented the usual EC stats (see the presentation for details).

JCP.Next Discussion

Heather reviewed the status and progress on JCP 387, Streamline the JCP program. It passed the EC Final Approval Ballot and has been submitted for Final Release. The effective date will be in mid-December. The new version of the JCP program will be JCP version 2.11. The recently submitted Java SE 13, JSR 388, has already expressed the intention to migrate to JCP 2.11 as soon as possible. Andres commented that he plans to also migrate JSR 377, Desktop Application API to JCP 2.11. We will discuss with the community during the public EC meeting (see the presentation for more details).

Oracle Code One Activities and Events

We reviewed comments from the JCP related activities at Oracle Code One in October; Amelia applauded the activities. Don Raab especially enjoyed the hackergarten, and suggested more general seating to hang out in the area. Andres suggested scheduling the BOF sessions earlier in the afternoon, since they are often low in attendance due to other evening activities.

Other Business

Heather reviewed the calendar dates for the 2019 JCP EC Meetings (see the presentation for details); the May face to face will be in Tokyo hosted by Fujitsu (specific details to follow in early 2019). Twitter offered to host the Fall face to face meeting again in 2019, dates to be decided based on plans for coinciding with Oracle Code One 2019.
