Adoption of Management Recommendations
There was unanimous consent to approve the following Resolutions:
RESOLVED, that there was unanimous consent to approve the minutes of the March 23rd, 2009 Board meeting, attached hereto as Exhibit A. Ed Merks and Boris Bokowski abstained from the vote.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Mike Milinkovich reviewed the KPIs for the Eclipse Foundation with the Board. Mike noted that the value of Working Groups was beginning to be seen in that RIM had recently joined the Foundation as an Enterprise Member so that they could be on the Steering Committee for Pulsar. Mike noted that we are using mirrors almost entirely to ship Galileo which is resulting in a savings of approximately $30K for the Foundation. Mike further commented that the Foundation’s membership is currently at 173 Members, thirteen of which are Strategic Developers and one Strategic Consumer. Mike highlighted a growing IP contribution backlog. Mike indicated that while the Foundation is confident that we will get through the Galileo Release, if the Foundation is unable to find a way to reduce the overall backlog, we will need to examine other routes to solve the problem. Mike further commented that the Foundation was maintaining a good cash position.
Resignation. Mike Milinkovich advised the Board that Bjorn Freeman-Benson had tendered his resignation, effective May 1, 2009.
CPL/EPL Transition. Mike Milinkovich gave the Board an update on the CPL/EPL transition. Mike indicated that the process to have the EPL supersede the CPL is well underway. He further indicated that announcement would be forthcoming over the next few days.
There being no additional business to tend to, Mike Milinkovich declared the meeting adjourned.
