This Newsletter is sent to JCP Members, Executive Committee (EC) Members, Spec Leads. This edition covers recent news, jcp.org enhancements, the EC Elections, Spec Lead updates, and Java Specification Requests (JSR) in the spotlight.

In November the program office introduced a few enhancements to the jcp.org web site. All of the wikis and boards now include a way for users to give their quick opinion of the content by awarding each item with a rating, by selecting a certain number of stars. In addition, all of the public discussion boards and wikis include RSS buttons to enable a user to subscribe to updates of that content.

Also, please remember that the current feedback mechanism for JSRs are the discussion boards. The old jsr-xyz-comments aliases have been discontinued; if you send your feedback to one of these, that will not go to the Spec Lead or Expert Group.

Do you have candidates for 2010 Star Spec Leads? Please send email to heather@jcp.org if you would like to nominate a Spec Lead for this honor. For more information on the Star Spec Lead program, see: http://jcp.org/en/press/news/star2

If you are interested in gathering together for discussion with fellow spec leads, the program office can coordinate and host these conversations. Please let the PMO know that you would like to participate. Possible topics include JCP version 2.7, discussion boards/aliases, features of jcp.org, inactive JSRs, transparency, agility, how to submit your stage submissions, licensing, or any other topic of interest. The next call will take place in late January or early February 2010.
