Since I wrote up the really, really old minutes, I thought I would write up the old minutes as well!
Java.Net Board Meeting Minutes April 12th
Attendees: Dan, Shawn
1) AI's from previous meeting:
Greg: Create the page for the games catalog and announce it to the community
Greg was not present at the meeting. Other board members unaware of any progress made on this.
Dan: Move project proposals and board announcements to the forums and update all procedure docs
to reflect this.
2) Community Demo Catalog again.
It looks like the Wiki (http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Games
) would be a good place to host the catalog.
3) There are concerns about the developer agreement
Need to explain to people that the only reason the agreement is needed is to protect against
third party IP being contributed to the project without the party's consent. Dan will try to add
a little clarification to the docs on this.
4) Board Goals
Board needs to decide on goals for this session.
Will be further defined in email/forums/etc.
5) Anything going on at E3?
Sun/GTG will not have a booth at E3.
6) Question about JOGL on Mac OS X Status
There were build problems with JOGL on the mac but Dan believes they were fixed.
Shawn will confirm status and bug Dan if the builds are still broken.
7) Public domain Art and Content page.
There were some suggestions from the community that some PD art might help when they are developing
their games. The Wiki is a great place to list things like this.
AI: Dan - add a place in the Wiki where links to PD art can go.
The Wiki could be a very useful thing for all those forum posts asking for tutorials, sample code, etc.
Need to promote this more! http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Games
