Where would we put these hints? There's a nicely formatted explanation 
of Derby JIRAs attached to 
http://db.apache.org/derby/DerbyBugGuidelines.html However, it doesn't 
mention a number of interesting fields, including the Urgency field and 
the flags. That page, in turn, is also referenced by the wiki: 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbyDev The instructions for creating a 
release note are hung off a wiki page dealing with the patch process: 

It would be good to have one place where a new developer could go to 
learn our JIRA-related conventions. Is there such a page already and I 
just can't find it? Is the nicely formatted document the right 
place--and it just needs to be refreshed with more information and new 
screen shots?
