Yes, priorities (mental translation SEVERITIES)  are quite out of whack, 
not only because of the misnamed field, but because "Major" is the default.

After we get Urgency in and all the fields documented  based on recent 
discussions. In addition to our distributed maintenance process, we 
really need a full pass of  Jira Issue's open and closed.  We should 
correct Jira settings for  regression, existing application impact, 
Priority, affects and Fix version (for closed issues), and release note 
needed.   These should all be fairly objective fields.

If  you are a  newcomer,   student or other who wants to make a high 
value contribution and  learn a lot about Derby in the process and start 
working with me on this important project, I would be most grateful. 
Best qualified candidates would be someone with

 - An intense focus on the user perspective or desire to have it.
 - A high level of respect and appreciation for the developers who add 
all the wonderful new functionality and fix the bugs.
 - Enough of the two items listed above to get excited when you find a 
hidden issue because  flushing out and identifying issues *before* users 
hit them  is what everyone wants. 
- Some JDBC API /Database externals  (usage)  knowledge  but not 
absolutely required.

Please let me know if you are interested.
