Here is what Derby has been up to in Q2 (April-June).

Derby added Tomohito Nakayama as a new committer.
[Early Q3 note: two more committers were added and derby-dev is voting 
on another.]

Plans were completed for a 10.1 incubator release and candidate jars 
were made available for testing and review.  [Early Q3 note: the vote 
passed for the candidate and Andrew McIntyre requested permission from 
general@incubator.apache.org to make it available as an incubator release.]

The Derby community is thriving. Today 
http://people.apache.org/~coar/mlists.html#db.apache.org shows that the 
derby-dev list is up to 225 subscribers and derby-user up to 322 (both 
figures include digest subscribers).

There is heavy development activity on both the code front and the doc 
front.

Many code challenges are being worked on via the derby-dev list and the 
number of Derby developers working on Jira issues has increased to 36 
(the number in the derby-developers Jira group).

One doc challenge is how to make a DITA stylesheet, which is under the 
CPL license, available on incubator.apache.org/derby to improve the 
format of the html documentation. A Derby mentor advised asking the 
author if he would be willing to license that particular file to the ASF 
under the Apache License. It turns out the DITA Toolkit team is 
interested in releasing the Toolkit itself under the Apache license, and 
hopefully all details will get worked out in Q3.
