Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-587) Providing JDBC 4.0 support for derby
Date Mon, 31 Oct 2005 14:35:18 GMT
Does Derby or Apache  have a set of coding guidelines? Where would a new 
contributor find rules about copyright notices and @author tags? It 
would be helpful if we had a link to the rules in the 'Contribute Code 
or Documentation' section of the Community tab.
