Subject Apt repositories
Date Sat, 23 Apr 2011 23:49:19 GMT
I just noticed that, following the Cassandra 0.8 beta release, the Apt
repository is encouraging servers in my clusters to upgrade. Beta
releases should probably be on different channels (or named differently)
than stable ones.

Better yet would be naming the packages based on the major release in
order to prevent an inadvertent upgrade, even once the next release
stabilizes. For example, having cassandra-0.7 and cassandra-0.8 would be
great, with installation of the latter replacing any cassandra-0.7
package. This is common with PHP and MySQL packages where it's not
entirely safe to inadvertently do a major upgrade.
