Minutes, summary from previous meetings

The EC approved the minutes and summary for the May meeting. The EC requested a change to the minutes of the June meeting, and postponed approval of the June minues and summary until the next meeting.

PMO Topics

EC statistics were presented for review.

No personnel changes were reported

Confidentiality of EC meetings

(This subject was not on the agenda, but the EC considered it important enough to discuss before moving on to the Reform Proposals topic.)

The EC had a lively discussion about the extent to which information about EC meetings should be revealed to the public, and whether it should be published for JCP members only or for the general public. While no definitive conclusions were reached, members agreed that more disclosure was necessary, and that this subject should be discussed again at the next EC meeting.

JCP Reform Proposals

As requested during the June EC meeting Patrick prepared a presentation on JCP reform, focusing on Governance and Transparency. (The topics were discussed in the reverse order to which they are presented in the presentation.)

The Governance discussions focused the balance between corporate and "non-corporate" membership of the EC. Patrick confirmed the importance of corporate involvement in standards development. Members agreed that an open election process is the best way to ensure broad representation.

Patrick then presented a summary of "open and transparent" JSRs. EC members were generally encouraged by the situation but agreed that we should gather more information, publish best practices, and encourage those who are less open to follow the example of the leaders.

Next meeting

Face-to-face. September 25-26, Sun campus, Burlington MA.
