      Description

      1.3 JSR DEADLINES specifies that JSRs must reach Early Draft Review within 1 year, Public Review within 2 years, and Finale Release within 3 years, or else be subject to a JSR Renewal Ballot. Are these times appropriate, or should we shorten them?

      Also, we've now decided to add a similar timeout for Maintenance Releases (not yet implemented.) The current suggestion for that is 90 days. Is that the right time?

          Despite lengthy discussion at the September f2f meeting we failed to reach agreement.

          Some argued for much shorter time-out deadlines in order to "send a message" that we expect rapid progress. Others arguing for regular "reviews."

          Patrick pointed out that we can't impose too much of a burden on the PMO, and reminded everyone that the purpose of this change is to permit us to deal with JSRs that are obviously stalled or inactive rather than to encourage people to work faster.

          Needs further discussion at the next Working Group meeting.

          As agreed during the September 21 Working Group meeting, we're going with 9 months plus 12 months plus 12 months. The relevant text now reads:

          "If a JSR does not begin Early Draft Review within 9 months of completing its JSR Approval Ballot, or does not begin Public Review within 12 months of first submitting an Early Draft, or does not reach Final Release within 12 months of commencing Public Review, then the EC should initiate a JSR Renewal Ballot unless it is agreed that there are extraordinary circumstances that justify the delay.

          I'm now closing this issue

          You said 9+9+9, but you wrote 9+12+12. Which did you intend?
