JSR 355, JCP.next.2
The second phase of revising the Java Community Process is underway as JSR 355, the stated goal being:
This JSR will make changes to the JCP's Process Document and the Executive Committee's Standing Rules with the goal of merging the two Executive Committees into one and reducing the number of Executive Committee members from the current total of 32.
While not large in scope, the JSR does bring up some interesting process changes that the community should provide feedback on. The current list of issues are:
- Increase the minimum number of "yes" votes for JSR approval?
- Switch to a two-year election cycle?
- How many members should the merged EC have?
