Re: [microprofile-wg] VOTE: Funding MicroProfile Tutorial with 2023 Budget

I am closing this vote as communicated. The following members voted in favor: Microsoft, Oracle, Payara, IBM, Primeton, AsiaInfo, Fujitsu, Garden State JUG, and iJUG. Tomitribe has indicated it's abstention. The proposal passes with 90% approval.

On Monday I will share a draft invitation for the open bid. It will outline at a high level what the bidders need to deliver. I have already started this dialog with the Eclipse Foundation and hope we will be able to open bidding next week.

As part of the process, the Foundation has requested that we try to include a handful of initial potential bidders. Personally, I have Kito Mann's company in mind. I think Ondro Mihalyi, Werner Keil, Bazlur Rahman, Victor Orozco, etc are also possibilities (or more precisely, the companies they represent). Do others here have suggestions too? Note, of course others eligible can bid. This list is just a starting point and we will publicize as widely as possible in a time-bound fashion.

Please vote on a proposal to spend the remaining $10-11K 2023 budget on funding an official MicroProfile tutorial similar to what comparable technologies like Jakarta EE have.

We have discussed this matter in depth in the past. While there are many ideas on what to spend money on and how to spend it, the time to make a judicious decision is quickly running out. The highest priority item we have been able to identify is funding the tutorial. This has been a long standing gap that probably hurts adoption. It could start with a pretty modest 15-25 page tutorial. The best way we have been able to identify is an open bidding process run by the Eclipse Foundation. Any legal entity would be eligible to bid, but not purely individuals.

A Steering Committee Representatives vote is requested. Please respond with +1 (positive), 0 (abstain), or -1 (reject). Additional feedback on your vote is always appreciated, but not really required.

We will close the vote this Friday. We require a simple majority positive vote of the Steering Committee members. There is no veto. Community input and votes are welcome. However, only the votes delivered by Steering Committee Representatives will actually count.
