Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1797) update release practices to cover multiple Hadoops

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-1797:
--------------------------------------

I'm not sure I agree with what you said [~kturner]. (When I say "we" going forward, I mean
the collective Accumulo community, which, when it comes down to it, likely refers to committers.)
We haven't really had a good track record for involvement in release testing. Perhaps making
a more discrete testing plan for committers to follow on their "flavors of choice" (OS and
Java, Hadoop, Zookeeper versions) would get committers more involved?

First off, I think that we should be testing Accumulo against each "stable" version of Hadoop
at the time of that release -- so, for 1.6.0, this equates to 1.2.1 and 2.2.0. This also defines
what I would call "supported". Unless the Hadoop community would do something drastic that
would break us (which I would never expect to be the case), I think tracking Apache Hadoop
would be the best. I think this also makes management of the hadoop.profile's a bit easier
to track/maintain.

Zookeeper, I'm less concerned about testing. I'd feel ok testing against the most recent,
stable release (3.4.5, presently), but if someone wants to test 3.3.6 too, that'd be good.
I just wouldn't want to hold up our releases for not having rigorous testing against 3.3.6.

> if we're going to label Hadoop platforms as supported, we should ensure the release process
specifies that tests are run against each of them.
