        I'm attaching DERBY-5767.diff, DERBY-5767.stat, and DERBY-5767.zip, removing the references to NATIVE::LOCAL from two topics:

        M src/ref/rrefproper13766.dita
        M src/devguide/cdevcsecurenativeauth.dita

        I notice there are still four error messages in the current version of rrefexcept71493.dita that seem to refer to NATIVE::LOCAL as a settable value. Perhaps you are fixing these in other issues, Rick?

        Thanks in advance for reviewing this.

        Thanks for the patch, Kim. I will look at those remaining references to NATIVE::LOCAL in the error messages.

        The patch looks good. I tripped across one puzzling sentence, but it wasn't something that you changed: In the second, longer paragraph of the BUILTIN bullet, we recommend LDAP and user-supplied schemes as alternatives to BUILTIN, but we don't recommend NATIVE. Did we decide to not recommend NATIVE here or should this be adjusted to include it beside the other safe schemes? Thanks.

        Oops! I missed a spot. With most of those notes, we do tell them to use NATIVE. The same problem exists in one other topic in the reference manual (derby.user.UserName) and one in the developer's guide. I will check for others.

        I think I'll commit this patch and file yet another JIRA to catch these. Thanks for noticing.
