The list of issues you wanted feedback on contained many improvements,
not only bug fixes. Should we mark issues that implement new features
with derby_backport_reject_10_8, or would it be sufficient to use the
label on bug fixes that shouldn't be backported? (I think previous
backporting efforts have focused on issues reported as bugs.)
