Subject Re: POLL: Remove need for DB2 JDBC driver from Derby build and test
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2005 22:56:24 GMT
I'd be happy to fix this, I just thought I'd follow the process, and I 
also thought *perhaps* you might want to own this.  I do hope you review 
what I write and make sure I'm not misstating anything (no that I ever 
do *that* :) ).

Cheers,

David
