Subject Splitting up the fixed issues listing in the release notes
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2012 13:48:53 GMT

While looking through the release notes for 10.9 it occurred to me that 
rather many of the issues listed under "Bug Fixes" aren't of particular 
interest for users of Derby, and that those that are of interest may be 
somewhat hard to find in the long list.

Do people think it makes sense to split up the list of fixed bugs into 
several sections, for instance product fixes, docs and web site fixes 
,and test fixes?

I chose the two additional categories because they stand out relatively 
clearly. Maybe I'm wrong, but I imagine some users would want to skip 
the test issues, look at the docs issues to see if there have been fixes 
to relevant areas, and look at the list of product fixes out of 
curiosity or to check if there may be fixes that address particular 
problems they are seeing with Derby.

I've attached an example, and a diff showing the required changes to the 
build tools. There are details to settle for a final version of this
