CFML Advisory Committee
Ben Forta announced in this morning's CFUNITED keynote that Adobe has formed a CFML Advisory Committee that will be responsible for guiding and reviewing changes to CFML going forward. The committee is made up of:
- Sean Corfield, lead
- Ben Forta, Adobe
- Adam Lehman, Adobe
- Gert Franz, Railo
- Matthew Woodward, Open BlueDragon
- Ray Camden
- Rob Brooks-Bilson
This is brand new information and details are still being worked out. I was not actually expecting it to be announced yet but I'll post more information as and when I can.
As you can see, Adobe has just two positions on the committee, so this is intended to be community-driven, not Adobe-driven.
When someone asked why no one from other CFML engine vendors was listed, Ben explained (as carefully as he could) that the committee was made up of people who have shown an interest in working together on CFML for the benefit of the community. This issue is going to continue to be hotly debated, I'm sure, which is why I mention it up front instead of waiting for someone to ask in a comment!
Updated to show latest committee line up February 2009.
