      Description

      Should we shorten the time-periods between JSR deadlines in the interests of more rapid posting of milestones?

      Section 1.3 of the Process Document specifies deadlines for reaching various milestones. Should we modify these in order to encourage faster progress? Do we need to add any more deadlines (eg, specify the maximum time from Proposed Final Draft to Final Approval Ballot?

          There should be a maximum of 6 months from Final Draft Approval to the Final Release Ballot.

          Once a JSR has received Final Draft Approval, what needs to be done before Releasing it other than resolve any issues that came up during the FDA ballot? If the changes are so extensive that it takes more than 6 months to make them, then the JSR should have to pass another Final Draft Approval.

          This is looking to address a situation that only happened one time during the whole life of the JCP. I'm very worried about imposing limits and adding more checks to address something that only happened once, it does not sound reasonable. Adding more process because of a single situation is conterproductive. The fact that this was needed a single time may just be the exception that proves the process works. Probably this can be equally addressed by the PMO in an simpler way.

          As discussed in the 20 May, we think the deadlines are working now as they are.

          At the June EC Meeting is was suggested that we should reopen this issue because some members felt there should be a time specified between proposed final draft and final release. There is already a time specified from Public Review to Final Release as 12 months in Section 1.3. The Working Group did not see a need to add more restrictions, but should be flexible within the reasonable 12 month time frame from PR to Final. See section 1.3 JSR Deadlines: https://jcp.org/en/procedures/jcp2#1.3

          Additional discussion in the Working Group did not change the original decision to make no change in this area.
