For reference, you can look up a revision that has been applied to your 
svn view with: svn log -r 169667. Or, if it was not in your view, with 
propget like so: svn pg --revprop -r 169667 svn:log

But if you run that last command, you get:

Applied Jeff's patches for DERBY-87, DERBY-116 and DERBY-164

More detailed explanations than this are essential, if not in both 
places (Jira and svn), then please at least in one! When determining 
what changes have been made, it is one thing to have to go from one 
place to the other, but if they each point at each other and neither 
have much (or any) information, it makes something like updating the 
CHANGES file very difficult. While what happened to fix 116 is clear, 
87 is less so, and 164 even less.
