Issues requiring the Board's attention: none.

Infrastructure
--------------
We have no outstanding infrastructure issues.  We added a new mailing  
list for build alerts from the community-run build system.

Development
-----------

BEA released a version of the JRockit virtual machine (not open  
source) that works with the the Harmony class library.  This is a  
production-grade, high-performance JVM.  Not only is this a very  
useful tool for the project as we can use it to help isolate class  
library bugs because the JVM is "known good", it's also a good  
demonstration of the adaptability of the Harmony class library.

Along with the continuous work across all aspects of the codebase,  
the project accepted several new donations of code.  These were voted  
by the project on the dev list and have been incorporated into the  
project codebase, or are in progress :

1) "java.lang.management" package from IBM for the classlibrary
2) JSSE test suite from Intel
3) Reliability test suite from Intel
4) HTML parser for Swing from ITC
5) "javax.naming.ldap" package from ITC

Security
--------
There were no reported security issues.

Community
---------
We're still watching the OpenJDK project for opportunities to  
collaborate, but so far, there has been little activity there since  
our last update.

We have voted in one new committer :

   Xiao-Feng Li

We have added 7 committers to the PMC :

   Alexei Zakharov
   Alexey Varlamov
   Gregory Shimansky
   Alexey Petrenko
   Richard Liang
   Oliver Deakin
   Nadya Morozova
