Oracle tells JCP EC to fuck off and bow to its will
In the published minutes of the JCP EC meeting in Bonn last October, the complete (might I say epic) failure of Oracle's Java Community stewardship becomes visible (emphasis mine):
Doug asked Oracle to acknowledge that it was asking the ECs to condone breaking the JSPA rules. He said that if he was put in a position where he had to condone breaking the rules he would have to resign. Ken said that he understood, and would regret it if Doug resigned, but pointed out the importance of allowing the conversation to go forward.
Doug Lea resigned from the JCP EC on 22 October 2010.
How is that for being positive and constructive?
