Hi Mark. Reviving this thread from the past.

Before my vacation I sent out this question to some people I think would qualify to be in an editorial board of the Java style guide:

"If we were to assemble a set of four-six persons to build an editorial board for the Java Style Guide, would you agree to be part of it?"

The following set of people replied that they are interested in participating: Brian Goetz, Paul Sandoz, Stuart Marks, Joe Darcy, Andreas Lundblad, Michael Diamond. I'd be willing to participate myself as well if needed.

I hope this shows that there are qualified contributors willing to volunteer and that we should plan for the next step.
