      For those who are interested in Derby / Cloudscape:

      IBM Donates Cloudscape to Apache Foundation & MS's Patent Purpose

 It seems to be big:

"IBM estimated the value of its contribution to be about $85 million"

Subject: DB PMC has voted to sponsor Derby

> The attached proposal asks that a list and cvs
module incubator-derby be created.  I would suggest,
unless that conflicts with current incubator policy.  There is also some
discussion indicating Derby may wish to use subversion instead of cvs.  Since
cvs module setup is sometimes delegated to the sponsoring PMC, I will make sure
this is clarified before that step is taken.  But please proceed with the
preparations for Derby's incubation.
