Subject 10.5.2 draft release notes
Date Fri, 10 Jul 2009 20:58:48 GMT
Please review the attached RELEASE-NOTES.html file for the draft release 
notes for  I expect a few more bugs to be added.

I followed the process at 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/ReleaseNoteProcess to generate these 
release notes and it all went very well.  I didn't have to remove the 
DOCTYPE as the documentation suggests and our 2 release notes were well 
formed. In the end I only had a couple of questions for our  vacationing 
ReleaseNoteGenerator experts for contemplation upon their return.

1) I noticed the releaseID is picked up from 
tools/ant/properties/release.properties not from releaseSummary.xml like 
the other values.  It is however in releaseSumary.xml.  Would it make 
sense to switch this to pick up the value from releaseSummary.xml or 
should we just update the documentation to say release.properties needs 
to be updated?  I prefer the former, but there seems to have been some 
amount of effort put into making this value come from release.properties.

2)  I added to the  excludeReleaseID list  but its use has once 
again escaped me.   My fixedBugsList.xml had all bugs fixed in 
and there didn't seem to be anything to exclude from that list.  Myrna 
explained this all to me once before but I seem to have forgotten and 
want to make sure I haven't missed anything.
