The Shenandoah discussion in February had run its course within 9 days.
Once Roman wanted to initiate the vote on the Project in March, it
became clear that the HotSpot Group Lead at the time was no longer at
Oracle, and no longer actively acting as Group Lead, and therefore
unable to get to sponsor the Project, as required in the Bylaws for the
While an inactive Group Lead could have been removed by votes of the
HotSpot Group's Members (or in exceptional circumstances, by a vote of
the Governing Board), I think that it's preferable for a person that is
no longer acting as a Group Lead to resign if no longer interested in
the role, than to attempt to vote them out.
The resignation happened three months later, in June.  The vote for a
new Group Lead was completed by the end of June.  The Governing
Board confirmed the new Group Lead in July. 
The delay between the initial discussion of Shenandoah and the Project
vote had nothing to do with interrogations of any kind.
