I think that sounds ok.  I agree the Jira fix version should match 
sysinfo, so whoever is making the unofficial patch level should bump the 
version immediately after making the jars they plan to hand out in 
preparation for the next round.

The downside is that it may confuse users, because they don't have 
access to these versions referred to in Jira from the Derby site, but 
they will still be listed as unreleased, so it should be ok. They can 
all be merged into the real Derby release if and when there is one.

It would, of course, be best if we could have a corresponding Derby 
release,  so the whole community could benefit, but the overhead and the 
turnaround time (at least 7 days for a vote) is just not practical. It's 
too bad posting snapshots is no longer allowed.
