Updated GlassFish Geo Map - July 2007

Jamey just pushed out the latest GlassFish Geo Map. It was delayed by a day because he had to change the implementation from DOM to SAX to deal with the extra data points. We now have 723K hits from 123K different IP (Feb 2007 through Jul 2007).

Welcome to the Interim Governance Board, Pierre!

Good news! Pierre will join the GlassFish Interim Governance Board. Pierre was very active at Apache and JCP communities for many years and I feel very lucky that he has found time in his busy schedule at Google to help the GF community. So far we have Greg, Pierre and myself. Two more yet to finalize - one Sun, one non-Sun.
