The Governing Board oversees the structure, operation, and overall health of the OpenJDK Community. It upholds and maintains the Bylaws, resolves procedural disputes, and ensures that sufficient infrastructure is available to Community members. The Governing Board has no direct authority over technical or release decisions.
The current members of the Governing Board are:
- Georges Saab (Chair, Oracle),
- John Duimovich (Vice Chair, IBM),
- Mark Reinhold (OpenJDK Lead, Oracle),
- Prof. Doug Lea (At-Large, SUNY Oswego), and
- Andrew Haley (At-Large, Red Hat).
At-Large members serve for a term of one calendar year, starting on the first day of April each year. The 2013 election for At-Large members is now in progress.
The Governing Board currently has two Observers:
- Ed Lynch (IBM), and
- Mike Milinkovich (Eclipse).
