Does that mean the downloaded packages have no release notes?  So if a
release is made with known bugs, the only way to find that out is to go
to the Apache Derby site and find the release notes there?

This seems like an issue, it's typically to have this kind of
information with the download, not separate. It's also based upon an
assumption that internet access is easy, which is not true for all of
the world. People may be getting Derby from CD/DVDs or bundled within
other applications. Assuming there's an easy path back to the apacche
site seems wrong.
