Subject Re: Accumulo 1.6 vs 1.7

Hi Mike,

Bug-fixes should be landing in both branches if applicable and both 
branches receive no new features (per semantic versioning). If you 
aren't tied to one or the other, choose 1.7 as it's the way of the 
future. While 1.6 is probably "safer" due to being out and in use longer 
than 1.7, that doesn't imply that 1.7 is unsafe.

We have also not discussed EOL'ing 1.6 so that is not an immediate 
concern but I'd guess that it would happen within the next year or two.
