Those instructions are actually a bit terse. The actual wording is 

"Also adjust version numbers in documentation by modifying the
appropriate *conrefs.dita files."

There are actually a number of such files

dt136804@khepri32~/derby/docs-10.4$ find . -name '*conrefs.dita'

I assume that only those under src are of interest. Seems only two files
actually conatin the string '10.3':
M      src/conrefs.dita
M      src/ja_JP/conrefs.dita

If that's all that needs to be done, I can check in the change.
