To be consistent with the Bylaws, this (excellent) proposal
needs to reflect that the membership in the EAC is by virtue of representing a
PMC, a strategic developer member or appointed by the Executive Director.
(Please see Section 7.2 of the Bylaws.)
I think that this can easily be done by simply adding a step
where changes to the EAC membership list are approved by the Executive Director.

Subject: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Inactive EAC Members Process
order to get a better handle on what members of the EAC are
active, I'd like to propose the following:
add an "EAC
Member (dormant)" status similar to the Committer
Emeritus status. Dormant members do not take part in active discussions,
but retain their right to take part (because they represent a Strategic
Member Company or a PMC, or have been appointed but don't currently have
time). Dormant members get separately listed on the councils
enter the dormant
status after 3 months of inactivity (counting mailing list
submissions, and meeting attendance), or at their personal request (such
as a person taking a sabbatical, for instance). We might want to discuss
whether dormant members can actually still mentor any project or not.
members get removed
after 1 year in the dormant status (members representing a
strategic member, or PMC can not be removed).
order to track meeting attendance, I have edited the Aug
14 meeting notes, adding a "No Answer" section which lists those
people who have not yet said whether they were at the meeting or not. Attendee
and non-attendee lists are now sorted alphabetically for easier maintenance.
Note that for future meetings, just clicking the "Yes" or
"No" link of the Google Calendar Invitation will be sufficient to
express attendance or non-attendance.
this time, I'd like to ask those on the following list, who are still
interested in the Council, to edit
the Wiki page, or let me know by private mail whether they were
actually at the meeting or not: Chris Aniszczyk, Wayne Beaton,
Adrian Colyer, Naci Dai, Timothy Deboer, John Duimovich, John Graham, Kevin
Haaland, Thomas Hallgren, Jochen Krause, Wenfeng Li, Mike Milinkovich, Philippe
Mulet, Georg Schmidt, Mark Vandenbrink, David Williams, Andrew Young.
order to make the proposed process (at least a little bit) automated, I'm
wondering whether Bjorn's Project Dash / Committer Activity Meter could be
beefed up to count EAC Mailing List submissions, and get the meeting attendance
list fed in manually somehow?
general, when a person is about to become dormant, I guess I'd prefer trying to
see whether it's possible to motivate the person to become active again. On the
other hand, we have a lot of excellent, bright people on the projects who could
be freshly nominated into the EAC. As mentioned during the meeting, nominations
can be made by a simple E-Mail to the mailing list.
