FTR: A stated goal is to get to a hadoop-2.0.5-beta within the next couple of months. I, and
my team, have been spending an inordinate amount of time vetting and solidifying YARN APIs
and protocols for long-term sustenance:

The same effort is undergoing for HDFS (wire) protocols.

To be clear: do not confuse API work with stability of YARN itself. YARN, the system, and
MapReduce atop, are very stable and has very, very large-scale deployments already. The above
effort is an endeavor to ensure long-term maintainability of the APIs.

As I've said in the thread over at Hadoop (, it will help if Bigtop
is willing to step forward and vet Hadoop RCs. Would you guys be willing to help?
