One concern I have is how to draw attention of part-time experts more
easily. While many of us seem to be involved in Derby fulltime, reading
pretty much every message till the end, we do see several part-time
experts in specific areas. For example, how to best call on Jeremy to
contribute to ClassLoading issues? Or ping Jeff Lichtman on optimizer
history or advise? We do have to acknowledge DerbyDev volume is getting
daunting... If there is a better or different way, then we could use
that, I just can't think of it!
