Hi Lily,

I'm afraid I cannot find the docs in the two distributions which are 
supposed to contain them:

o There is supposed to be a docs directory in the bin distribution. That 
directory is supposed to contain the built versions of the docs. I 
tripped across this problem because the top level docs links in 
index.html don't work.

o The src distribution is supposed to contain two parallel directories, 
one for the program source and the other for the docs source. The docs 
source is missing.

These seem to me to be serious problems which warrant a new candidate.

I am enclosing the generateRelease script which I use to build releases. 
This may help you understand what went wrong. I believe that Myrna has 
also put some work into coding a master release target which builds both 
the docs and the jars. You may have encountered some problem in crafting 
tools/ant/properties/packaging.properties. That's where the directives 
live which glue the two repositories together.

My script assumes the following directory structure:


I run the script after changing directory to derby/branches and setting 
SANDBOX=branches and BRANCH=10.6.

Hope this helps,
