When you create or edit an issue, it's just below the description and  
just above where you comment. It's small and unassuming - it doesn't  
blink and it's not bright magenta - so it's easy to miss.

When searching for issues, you pick Find Issues, and then you need to  
select Derby as the project to search. That makes the custom 'patch  
available' field appear in the bottom left section of the screen, in  
the section labeled Custom Fields.

Now that I've got the hang of the custom fields in JIRA, I could add  
all sorts of things - drop-down boxes, radio buttons, checkboxes.  
But, I don't want to overload JIRA with a bunch of fields whose state  
is poorly maintained, either. A query for open issues with a patch  
available should satisfy the answer to the question: what needs  
review? That leaves the question: what needs commit? But, if there's  
a checkbox for 'Patch needs commit,' but it will still be up to the  
committer to review the review comments (be they in JIRA or on the  
list) and determine whether or not there is consensus to apply a  
patch, and the committer will still need to review the patch  
themselves anyway, so I guess I'm just not sure what value another  
checkbox would add.
