Excellent point. The release process that I have seen work very well in
the past is that you get on a regular date-driven release schedule (lets
say quarterly) but you still allow for patch release with very limited
scope from time to time. Path releases are NOT date driven -- they
go out when all the patches required are committed to trunk and back
ported to the appropriate branch.

So, would the following work for us: we go ahead with 1.0 release as planned
(unless showstoppers get identified in the next 72 hours). But we all agree
to 1.0.1 with scope strictly limited to YARN stabilization on top of
Hadoop 2.0.4.
If we get all that we need for 1.0.1 in a week -- we'll release in a week if
it takes us 3 weeks -- we'll release in 3 weeks and so on.
