Subject [DISCUSS] 2.0.0-alpha?
Date Sat, 06 Oct 2018 04:27:30 GMT
Hi Accumulo devs,

I'm thinking about initiating a vote next week for a 2.0.0-alpha
release, so we can have an official ASF release (albeit without the
usual stability expectations as a normal release) to be available for
the upcoming Accumulo Summit.

An alpha version would signal our progress towards 2.0.0 final, serve
as a basis for testing, and give us something to share with a wider
audience to solicit feedback on the API, configuration, and module
changes. Of course, it would still have to meet ASF release
requirements... like licensing and stuff, and it should essentially
work (so people can actually run tests), but in an alpha release, we
could tolerate flaws we wouldn't in a final release.

Ideally, I would have preferred a 2.0.0 final at this point in the
year, but I think it needs more testing.

Does an alpha release next week seem reasonable to you?
