This is a very important point.  I do think in the past the list was 
published earlier and we had lots of students that came into Derby early 
and got their build and test environment set up and an issue or two 
fixed before the application was submitted.   I am guessing a lot of the 
students that might have come to Apache went off to other projects for 
this reason.
