I am inclined to cast a positive vote. However, first I'd like to hear 
from Myrna, who is about to produce a Derby release and will be the 
first Derby release manager affected by this change. I want to make sure 
that she is comfortable with this change and how it will affect her 
management of Derby 10.10.2.
