Subject Thoughts on a release?

One of the criteria for Derby exiting incubation is to have 'One or more
Releases of the package during the incubation phase'.
http://incubator.apache.org/derby/derby_proposal.html#Section+6+%3A+Incubation+Exit+Criteria

An example of a release process at Apache is here
http://httpd.apache.org/dev/release.html for the HTTP server.

As a project in incubation, Derby has some restrictions on release
discussed here:
http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Releases%0A

Are there any thoughts on if the current Derby code is ready, and if the
community should start thinking about an initial release? Obviously some
of the patches submitted so far to fix bugs would need to be committed
first, once commit access is available!

I believe that a release of Derby would attract more users, having
downloadable pre-built jar files would help those who don't want to get
into building Derby from scratch.

A release would also may need some decisions to be made like will there
be future bug fix releases of the release and will databases built from
the release be upgradable to future versions of Derby?

Dan.
