Subject Re: Release Overview
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2005 17:34:41 GMT
I think release information belongs with the release itself; in other 
words, release notes for should be at 
http://cvs.apache.org/dist/incubator/derby/ and release notes 
for each later release belong with that release.  The derby web site can 
link to it and, perhaps more importantly, other sites that link to the 
distribution can find what they need right there without having to 
navigate back to the derby site.

I thought we had discussed this at one point in December. I'll hunt 
through the email.

also, I recall that somebody actually poste release notes back in 
December and there was a review round or two. I'll hunt through the email.
