Subject Re: Please add descriptive Jira comments when fixing bugs

I recommend going with option 1: "one zip file with the patch and the 
html output".

I believe you can upload a zip file to Jira. The same is not necessarily 
true for posting to derby-dev. Everyone seems to let me know when ezmlm 
bounces a zip file that somebody attempts to post to derby-dev / 
derby-user, and I can say that it appears to bounce frequently. :-)

If the one zip file approach doesn't work for whatever reason, we could 
revisit the issue.
