There are currently 5 (yes, five) incremental patches attached to DERBY-688, 
each of which is dependent on its predecessor and none of which have been 
reviewed/committed yet.  I also have one or two _additional_ (small) patches to 
post in order to align the XML datatype with the targeted subset of 
SQL/XML[2006] functionality.

I've already given up on completing any of the JDBC-side changes described for 
DERBY-688 by the August 10th deadline (yes, I need to update the spec to reflect 
that); instead I'm just working on SQL-side support only (and even that is just 
a subset of what I originally proposed).  That said, I've been side-tracked with 
the blocker regression DERBY-1633 and am therefore quickly running out of time 
to finish the final XML changes.

While I still hope to have the remaining patches posted by the 10th, if anyone 
has time to review/commit the patches that I've already posted, I would be 
extremely grateful.  It's hard enough that I'm side-tracked with DERBY-1633; it 
would be nice if, when I finally get back to XML, I could just spend time on the 
remaining changes instead of having to re-sync all five patches with the latest 
codeline (and with each other) and then create the final patches w.r.t to those 
other uncommitted patches.  Ugh.  This kind of multi-patch-sync is 
time-consuming, error-prone, and just generally not fun (one of the downsides to 
incremental development, I guess...?).

If there's anyone out there with the time and inclination to move the XML 
patches forward (by reviewing and/or commmitting), I could certainly use the help.

Many thanks,
