This is not a suitable discussion for this list but I would like to point
out that the JSR-166 EG (including Doug and Tim) continue their work on
evolving Java concurrency irrespective of anyone's involvement in the JCP
Executive Committee.

  Off topic, my apologies in advance. But as an employee of Credit Suisse
and a member of the Credit Suisse JCP Technical Advisory Committee, I share
Doug Lea and Tim Peierls sentiment in resigning from the JCP. Android is the
best thing that ever happened to Java, and Java wouldn't be Java if not for
Apache's contribution!

  However as a Java developer since the early days, I would hate to assist
in Java's hari kari!

  What will be the future of Java without the key players - I mean is anyone
meaningful working on Java concurrency besides Doug and Tim?

  Come on guys - I don't work for Oracle, I am just a simple Java developer
who wants to see Java continue to grow.
  Larry Ellison is way too egotistical to be strong-armed - do we really
need to contribute to the death of Java?

  Sorry for the off-topic rant, but I am a long time list member so I hope
you will forgive me!

  Regards, Victor Grazi
