      Description

      Process Document review

      line numbers: JCP-2.8-21SEP2011-Redlined.pdf

      471-474 - too open-ended. Can only two members kick a license into Oracle legal? No timeframe for Oracle legal to make a decision. Also major problems with making this rest on Oracle legal. Should go through an independent mediator. The EC can always vote no, but it should be allowed a vote, otherwise this gives Oracle veto power.

      PC> Please open an issue if you want to pursue this further.

      SS> In other words, two members could call for a review and Oracle legal could simply take forever to make a decision, holding up the license until patents/copyrights revert to the public domain.

      Suggestions: review requires a majority vote (2/3?) and is done by independent legal counsel.
