By Tori Wieldt-Oracle on Apr 12, 2013
The OpenJDK Governing Board, which oversees the structure and operation of the OpenJDK Community, has elected two At-Large Members: Andrew Haley and Doug Lea. Both were previously serving as at At-Large members and began new one-year terms on April 1.
Andrew Haley, of Red Hat, wrote in his candidate statement that his goal is to “stand up for freedom and steer the governing board toward helping people who crank out code to get their job done.”
Lea, of SUNY Oswego, wrote that he hoped “to continue my role as an advocate for continuing improvements in OpenJDK processes and mechanisms, especially as they impact the academic, research, and individual contributor communities.”
