We might be able to create a place on the Derby Wiki (
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/ ) for users to share code.

One concern I have about putting it on the Wiki is users must contribute
code under the ASL (http://www.apache.org/licenses/) , and there's no
way to enforce that with the Wiki. For example, when you upload a file
to a Jira issue it includes a step that allows granting license to the
ASF. The Wiki doesn't have that feature.

I'll ping community@apache.org to see what other apache projects are doing.
