Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Atlas version 1.0.0-alpha release candidate 0
Date Tue, 16 Jan 2018 14:01:56 GMT
Hi Keval,
Thanks for kicking this off. For this release I think we need: 

- to define what we mean by an alpha release. I feel there are migration 
considerations we need to agree in the community how to handle and create 
statements associated with this alpha release :
        - migration to Janus means changing to TP3 graph - I thought we 
were going to supply migration scripts to migrate existing instance data 
from Titan 0 graphs.
            - as we bring in the open metadata capability, it makes sense 
that the models are added programmatically - we therefore are likely going 
to want to remove much of the Area models.
        - we may want to say something like - this is a technical preview. 
we do not provide migration tooling to or from this release. It is 
available as is and should not be used in production. 
- I think we should mention in the docs about Janusgraph - which is now 
the default and the new Maven build profiles and community supported build 
combinations - I think we are saying only Janus hbase and solr. 
- the docs all refer to the V1 API and not the strategic V2 API including 
relationships - I think the docs (not just the Swagger)  should be updated 
to reflect the current code. Some examples from the web site docs that 
might mislead: 
        - the first section after the high level architecture is the type 
system (the old one we have removed) and refers solely to V1 APIs. 
        - the metadata repository section is empty
        - search does not include the enhancements to basic search, DSL 
should include the up to date Antlr DSL grammar.
        - security should mention the support for Knox 
        - we seem to have lost the developers guide. 
- How close are we to a reliably clean nightly build running all the 
tests? When I try to run atlas after the build using the embedded solr, 
hbase and Janus is only intermittently starts successfully. 

I wanted to understand where we were on the above considerations before I 
all the best, David.
