Mark Reinhold, Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group, has posted on his blog a draft of the OpenJDK Bylaws - the rules by which the OpenJDK community will operate.
"The Bylaws deﬁne a Governing Board which oversees the structure, operation, and overall health of the Community. It upholds and maintains these Bylaws, resolves procedural disputes, and ensures that sufﬁcient infrastructure is available to Community members. The Governing Board has no direct authority over technical or release decisions."
The draft of the OpenJDK Bylaws will be revised during the next month in line with feedback from the community.
