Yes, the comments can be edited by those listed as administrators for 
the Derby Jira project. This list currently consists of the following 
people: Andrew McIntyre, Jean T. Anderson, Kristian Waagan, Rick 
Hillegas, Rodent of Unusual Size. The role of an administrator mostly 
consists of merging / managing versions, assigning new contributers to 
the developer role, assigning developers to the committer role, and 
assigning people to the PMC role. Except for the ability to assign 
issues to oneself when being in the list of contributers, I'm not sure 
if the other roles are actually paid attention to or used for anything 
Did I forget something?

Also, we share a Jira instance with many other ASF projects, so the 
possibility to make custom changes may have been somewhat restricted. In 
general, I think Jira is working nicely. The most annoying thing coming 
up in my mind, is that you can't set the patch available flag when you 
upload a new file. It has to be done in a separate step. This is no big 
deal though.

I also like to have a release date set for the various releases, but it 
is not quite clear to me which date is considered as the release date;
 o the date of the latest Subversion commit for the release?
 o the date the release artifacts are published and made publicly available?
 o the date when the release was built?
 o the date the community vote passes?
 o a date determined by the release manager?
 o another date?
