A couple of news-bits around the Java Community Process (JCP):

  • First, an insightful and candid interview with Patrick Curran, the JCP Chair. Patrick speaks about increasing transparency in the JCP, encouraging participation, JSRs as open source projects, and much more. Highly recommended reading.
  • Also, here is a podcast with Patrick on the topic of "Reforming the JCP"
  • The JCP PMO “Transparency Initiative” has been releasing minutes and materials of the past Executive Committee (EC) meetings on the web. For more information on the initiative see the slides in the January 2009 EC meeting.

Finally, the deadline for the JCP Program Annual Awards is today, May 4. For more information on the Awards please see here.

Cheers,
