Subject Re: Revisit Cassandra EOL Policy
Date Fri, 08 Jan 2016 17:32:27 GMT
Thanks Maciek !!
"do you have a link to the versioning policy? The tick-tock versioning blog post [1] says
that EOL happens after two major versions come out, but I can't find this stated more formally
anywhere."I couldn't find any versioning policy related to EOL. I think it should be there
on Apache website. The tick-tock blog post is the only reference.

"I don't have strong feelings about what the versioning policy should look like, but having
clear expectations about what happens if there's a critical bug (i.e., can we expect a patch
or do we need to upgrade major versions?) is very useful." No content available on supporting
critical bugs in EOL versions. If EOL means no fixes, I think upgrade is the only option left.

ThanksAnuj

 Anuj, do you have a link to the versioning policy? The tick-tock versioning blog post [1]
says that EOL happens after two major versions come out, but I can't find this stated more
formally anywhere. I'm interested in how long a given version will receive patches for security
issues or critical data loss bugs (i.e., the policy of the Apache project itself, distinct
from any support that may be available through Datastax). The Postgres project has a great
write-up of their policy [2].

And for what it's worth, we are starting to use Cassandra and do have automation around it.
I don't have strong feelings about what the versioning policy should look like, but having
clear expectations about what happens if there's a critical bug (i.e., can we expect a patch
or do we need to upgrade major versions?) is very useful.
