Hi Myrna -
Thanks for the through release report.  I took a look at the critical 
bug list and am concerned about the regression that causes locking 
DERBY-2892 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2892> - this is 
a regression of the DERBY-255 fix and, though it was introduced in 10.2, 
should be addressed quickly.  Has anyone look at the checkin that might 
have caused the regression?
DERBY-326 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-326> (svn 405037).

This also concerns me because I assume the problem is because of the 
collation differences between the SYS schema and the User Database - I 
am not upto date on this issue - can it be resolved?
DERBY-2896 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2896>   -  It 
sounds like DatabaseMetaData calls will fail when TERRITORY_BASED 
collation is used.  This will mean that many IDEs will not work with 
these databases.  Since this is a new feature it will not break existing 
systems but will slow use of the feature.
