Hello all,

I want to keep the movement towards a first Derby release going. Here's 
the latest summary:

1 - IP/copyright concerns - See "Derby code copyright question" thread. 
Still up in the air. Waiting on resolution from the Incubator PMC. 
Applied patch to include LICENSE/NOTICE file in individual jar files. I 
will proceed with putting together requested distributions based on the 
current state of the code. Source distribution (and, I suspect, binary 
distributions) will have to wait until this issue has been resolved.

2 - Apply all currently pending bug fixes. Here is a list of patches 
already applied:

[APPLIED] [PATCH] Optimization of 
[APPLIED] [PATCH] Set Derby's build number to be the subversion 
revision number
[APPLIED] [PATCH] derby.war file build
[APPLIED] [PATCH] derby.log file error message
[APPLIED] [PATCH] Network servlet display only message key
[APPLIED] [PATCH] added 3 more parser generated files to the clobber 
target in main build.xml
[APPLIED] [PATCH] Various fixes to javadoc generation
[APPLIED] [PATCH] Trigger Bug Fix
[APPLIED] [PATCH] Fix to prevent empty log file switches that could 
cause recovery failures
[APPLIED] [PATCH] ExternalSortFactory Bug Fix
[APPLIED] [PATCH] Modify dblook messages to enable localization ...
[APPLIED] [PATCH] minor bugs in dblook\

At some point we have to set a cutoff for patches which get included. 
Here are the patches which are currently pending, but not yet applied, 
that I feel should wait for the next release. Please speak up if you 
feel that one of these is crucial for this release:
[PATCH] Extension Packaging
[PATCH] retrieveMessages... true by default in ij (needs revision)
[PATCH] for Derby-32
[PATCH] Enable SO_KEEPALIVE on client TCP connections
[PATCH] for Derby-38

Also, note that the 'change copyright to ASF' patch is not included 
here because of issue #1.

3 - Current status of bugs targeted for the current release:

[FIXED] DERBY-24 Client should not be able to raise an event on a 
PooledConnection it no longer owns.

[FIXED] DERBY-6 Trigger of the form: create trigger ... values 
myFunction(); has no effect.
[FIXED] DERBY-30 Connection.close() method inconsistently throws 
exception on closed connection

Please speak up if you consider any other currently logged bugs as a 
showstopper for the release.

4 - Content and form of the release:

- - jar-only distribution (zip and tar.gz)
- - jars, javadoc and HTML documentation (zip and tar.gz)
- - distribution of jars to maven repository
- - source distribution (zip and tar.gz) (pending resolution of #1)

5 - Consensus on Derby's upgrade policy/version scheme. Upgrade policy 
in "[VOTE] Derby upgrade policy" thread accepted. Vote pending on 
versioning in "[VOTE] Derby versioning."

Please post other concerns if you have them.
