Subject Re: Proposal for 10.2 release schedule

Hi, Lance.  Sorry I had to challenge you publicly on the list, but
I'm really worried that if we're not very careful we are going to paint 
ourselves into a corner and we are going to have to fork Derby in order 
to do a Java DB release.

I think we need the JCP lawyers (and it sounds like the ASF lawyers) to 
weigh in on this question before we make any conclusions that could 
cause us real trouble.
