The administrative duties for Derby's JIRA are light: creating new
versions, merging old versions we no longer need to track, making new
components, and most importantly granting new contributors access.
While there usually isn't any urgency to these sorts of requests, I
agree that it is good to have people in widely divergent time zones so
that we can be more responsive to these infrequent but important
requests from contributors. With the exception of Kristian, the
current Derby JIRA admins are all in the Pacific time zone, so his
assistance is certainly welcome here.
