JSR 348 Public Review preparation

Patrick presented an overview of JSR 348 (see presentation.)

Eduardo Gutentag led a discussion on the new Standing Rules, focusing on the distinction between agenda items that are for discussion and items that are for action. Members considered whether items that had not been announced in advance should be discussed in EC meetings. Edin Bestevic stated that it was important that agendas be published in advance. Scott Jameson argued that there is no need to be too strict with the meeting rules since votes taken during EC meetings are only advisory. He agreed that advance notice would be useful, but argued for flexibility. Mike DeNicola and Ben Evans agreed.

Members then discussed the Maintenance Release process, and reached a consensus that if appropriately handled, the Issue Tracker, when combined with "voting with comments" could replace the Item Exception ballot.

These and other suggestions were later incorporated into the draft documents.
