Subject [Hadoop Wiki] Update of "Release1.0Requirements" by DougCutting

  == Is Hadoop Mature for 1.0 Release ==
   This section is for a discussion on whether the Hadoop components are mature enough for
a 1.0 label. If we are expecting a lot of flux in features that require changes to API, then
1.0 may be premature.
+ 
+ ''Another definition of 1.0 is that the product is "ready for users".  Hadoop has long been
ready for use, and indeed enjoys broad use.  So, by this argument, we could declare 1.0 sooner,
and then use 2.0 for our next, major, incompatible release. --DougCutting''
  
  Question: Does the release number really matter?  Should we just keep adding features, improving
back-compatibility, etc?  Our ["Roadmap"] currently defines what a major release means.  Does
this need updating?  -- !DougCutting

  === Time frame for 1.0 to 2.0 ===
  What is the expectation for life of 1.0 before it goes to 2.0 Clearly if we switch from
1.0 to 2.0 in 3 months the compatibility benefit of 1.0 does not deliver much value for Hadoop
customers. A time frame of 12 months is probably the minimum.
+ 
+ ''The [["Roadmap"]] suggests that major releases will be approximately annually.  I wouldn't
put 12-months as a hard minimum, but rather as an approximate goal.  Generally, we're slower
than our goals, so I'd be surprised if it was much less than a year.  --DougCutting''
