Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-296) Document
Date Fri, 20 May 2005 22:04:59 GMT
I'll make it a subtask, and make sure derbyall passes when I'm done. I'm
not sure what you mean by "gotchas in the locale files," any tips would
be appreciated; otherwise I'm going to focus on cleaning up the text and
fixing any necessary diffs in test output.

Cheers,

David
