Hi Laura,

I haven't wrapped my head around this myself, yet. At a minimum I would 
expect some urls to change since we would be going from a 
db.apache.org/derby namespace to a derby.apache.org namespace. For the 
sake of external links back to Derby I would hope that the Apache site 
would be able to redirect the old urls--but I don't know that. I think 
that a detailed understanding of this could be provided by the folks who 
managed our graduation from the incubator namespace into the db namespace.
