Subject Re: DERBY-4331 and the release
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 22:23:35 GMT
I am looking at DERBY-4331. I just wanted to share though that I had
made plans to be on vacation in August before this bug surfaced and
hence will not be able to work on the bug full time for the most of
August. Hopefully the bug will not take that long but wanted to give a
heads up. Apologies for the bad timing of vacation plans and this
