Present at the invitation of the Board was Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director and Janet Campbell, Secretary of Eclipse.org Foundation, Inc.
Adoption of Management Recommendations
There was unanimous consent to approve the following Resolutions:
RESOLVED, that there was unanimous consent to approve the full and abridged minutes of the April 15, 2008 Board meeting.
RESOLVED, that there was unanimous consent to approve the final audited financial statements for 2008.
JGit Licensing. Mike Milinkovich asked Shawn Pearce to introduce the topic of JGit licensing and in particular the possibility of the JGit project adopting the EDL as JGit’s Project License rather than the EPL. Shawn provided an overview of the proposal. Mike Milinkovich asked if it would be a hardship to the Project to consider dual licensing the Project under the EPL and EDL as dual licensing was more consistent with the approach taken in similar circumstances in the past. Shawn responded that he would like to better understand the implications of doing so and it was suggested that Shawn and Janet Campbell discuss further following the Board meeting. It was decided that this topic would be voted on at the next Board meeting in June.
Strategy Committee. Mike Milinkovich indicated IBM had proposed that Carl Zetie sit on the Strategy Committee on behalf of IBM. Mike favoured the appointment and said that we would be conducting an electronic vote to propose that John Kellerman be appointed to the Strategy Committee with Karl Zettie sitting as his representative.
Key Performance Indicators. Mike Milinkovich introduced the key performance indicators. Mike indicated that generally things were tracking as expected.
There being no additional business to tend to, Mike Milinkovich declared the meeting adjourned.
