garbage collection where he was one of the primary developers of the 
parallel compacting garbage collector.  Recently he has been spending a 
lot of time looking after the hsx Project repositories and organizing 
regular deliveries of HotSpot into JDK 8 and JDK 7 updates.

Votes are due by 7:00PM UTC, Friday 6 April [2].

Only current members of the Hotspot Group [3] are eligible to vote on 
this nomination.  Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this
