Finally, in June, the Group's discussions centered around a successful DevoxxUK / "Hack the Tower" OpenJDK hackday.
As part of a QA outreach effort by this Group's Members, 18 FOSS Projects and their developers listed on the corresponding Wiki page have been regularly contacted to announce the availability of Early Access (EA) builds based on various OpenJDK Projects, and encouraged to report back any issues they found during their testing. With about two thirds of the contacted Projects regularly testing such EA builds, a number of issues could be found and fixed in time prior to a release.
In this quarter, developers from participating projects filed 8 new issues in the JDK Bug System, 6 of which could be resolved. 3 of the issues filed turned out to be P2 issues, like issue JDK-8042589 found by the Apache Lucene development team, and issue JDK-8041481 found by the Groovy development team.
Adoption Group Members led, organized and participated in a number of public events promoting community involvement in the development, adoption and evangelism of OpenJDK projects during this quarter.
In May, the geecon conference hosted an Early Adopters panel with Adoption Group Member Daniel Bryant.
In June, the Devoxx UK conference hosted a presentation by Adoption Group Members Daniel Bryant and Martijn Verburg focused on OpenJDK adoption.
Looking forward, a number of Group Members plan to attend the Java One conference in the next quarter and speak at the corresponding BOF.
In this quarter, 3 Group Members have updated 5 pages on this Group's wiki.
