I'm thinking that in the interests of getting an official release out
with the Derby client, I'd like to aim for a release in about two
weeks or so.

Derby-31 is currently assigned to Oyvind Bakksjo. Are you assisting
him with this issue? Do you have an estimate when the work for this
might be complete?

Is anyone else working on features or JIRA bugs that they feel should
be in this release?

- Mamta's updatable result sets for Network Server changes have been
checked in, as have Lance's script changes.

- Jeremy, in what timeframe do you think you will have a working
prototype for the Datasource API changes? If you need help running
tests against the prototype, please email me, I can help out with
that. But, it's not clear to me that this is something that must be in
the 10.1 release. Is this something that could be deferred to a 10.2
(or even a 10.1.x) release? It's not unusual to manage API changes at
release boundaries, so I don't think that having to support the
current Datasource API going into the future is necessarily a reason
to hold up this release.

- Scanning through the list, I noticed Army mentioned basic XML
support. Army, any estimate on when this might be contributed? Or is
this for a future release?

Many people are also assigned JIRA issues. So, if you currently have a
JIRA issue assigned to you that you feel is a showstopper for a 10.1
release, please speak up!
