Sun Microsystems announced that it will bundle "Java DB"
with Mustang.

I doubt Derby's release cycle will synchronize with the Sun's JDK
release. Sun's JDK is just one of many that distribute Derby technology.

The original contribution of Derby was from IBM, hence IBM has the
copyright on all those original files. The ASF policy is not to have
individiual copyright statements in each source file and the new policy
(I think) is to remove the copyright statement in each source file,
leaving just the reference to the Apache Licence in the source file.
