Topic and Issues Report
Mike Milinkovich opened the floor to questions from the Board in relation to the Q4 2011 Topics and Issues Report. Paul Lipton commented that he continued to find the reports very useful. Paul asked for an update on Long Term Support. Mike indicated that the Foundation was working on the related infrastructure at the moment. In parallel, efforts continued to establish an Industry Working Group that will provide the governance around the Long Term Support program. Paul further indicated that it is important that added benefits/rewards are given to Strategic Members participating in the Long Term Support program.
Mike Milinkovich raised the topic of the TCK License, indicating that the Foundation was still awaiting a final version of the Agreement from Oracle. Mike indicated that when the Foundation moved forward with the Agreement, it would be important that Projects wishing to use the TCKs understand the issues that have been raised in relation to their use. Mike further indicated that given the seriousness of this topic, he and Janet Campbell had discussed having the EMO come back to the Board for discussion and a related resolution if the EMO wished to add additional TCKs to the Agreement in the future. Paul Lipton indicated that that would be extremely helpful and asked if the Foundation had a list of Projects that would be affected by the current proposal. Mike responded that EclipseLink and Virgo are the only Projects that would be affected to date.
Mike Milinkovich indicated that he would prepare a resolution regarding the Boards support for the Foundation to conclude the TCK Agreement consistent with the Board’s discussion and that an Electronic Vote on that resolution would follow the meeting.
