Hi Dyre,

I have fixed most of these issues as follows:

DERBY-3073: I unchecked the "Existing Application Impact" and "Release 
Note Needed" because this work has been disabled on the 10.4 branch,.

DERBY-2925: I renamed the release note to be "releaseNote.html", which 
is the file name expected by the release notes generator.

DERBY-2351: I fixed some markup which choked the xml parser.

The remaining issue in your list is DERBY-3023. There may be some 
confusion here. In previous releases, we only expected to see release 
notes for issues which had "Release Note Needed". This issue does not 
have that box marked and the issue doesn't have a release note. However, 
looking at the description of the issue, I could see a case for wanting 
a release note for this one. I will send another mail message re-stating 
the question you posed on this issue two weeks ago.
