Yeah, what he said!

I am sure these proposed changes will bring great benefits to all
parties involved in developing and using Java, both individual and
corporate. I very much want to thank you, Mark (also other Oracle staff
who took the decision), for making this happen.

One thing I still have not seen addressed is maintenance and
availability of TCKs. Are any changes planned there?
