Subject Re: 10.2 release in August?

Hi Andrew,

Yes, I'm still planning to manage a JDBC4-capable Derby release to go GA 
soon after Mustang (jdk1.6) goes GA in September/October. Bryan and Knut 
have expressed some concern that the Mustang schedule may slip. Although 
I do not foresee a Mustang schedule slip, I acknowledge the risk here. 
My plans assume that Mustang will hit its deliverables.
