The most recent openjdk governing board minutes I can find are two years old
and record the governing board's agreement to strive for a draft
Constitution by the end of 2008. I assume you've convened the board per its
agreement since it was expanded last year, but I can find neither draft
constitution nor more recent minutes of the board.
