      Description

      Process Doc Section 1.5.2: "Recommendation: During the JSR submission process the Spec lead tells the PMO what collab software will be used. Oracle legal reviews the Terms Of Use and reports to the EC."

      Not sure if having a board of only Oracle legal teams is the best way to go when it comes to transparency. Shouldn't a legal team be created from all EC if possible? --Jason

      Restricting legal control of the board to Oracle has flaming/blatent self-interest written all over it. If the EC/JCP is going to be truly open and transparent, then all members should be allowed to review and provide legal review of ANY JCP document, process, or license. --Lincoln

        I would like to see a legal council put together for the JCP with representatives from each EC (if they can provide them). This helps level the playing field on the legal side, it may take a little longer to reach a decision, but more input from the community is what we're trying to foster, correct?

        This already happens. All EC members are free to have their own legal counsel review any and all EC business, including licensing terms, and many of them do.

        As for the comment that we should form a "board" of legal counsel from all members, that is impractical, and would slow everything down to a crawl.

        I can't say anything about it slowing things down, we all know legal slows everything down, but how is this "impractical"? All I'm suggesting is a more level field for everyone without all legal advise and decisions coming from one company.

        These ideas were drafted by an independent group reviewing the Early Draft from June 21, 2011 - apologies for out-of-date issues.

        It was seen as impractical because all EC members already engage their legal teams are part of EC business as they see fit.

        Closing this, since we've addressed the submitter's concern (though perhaps not to his satisfaction.)
