Subject Re: [jira] Created: (HADOOP-1384) HBase code update 0.0.0-4
Date Thu, 17 May 2007 23:19:15 GMT
I had replied to Doug off the list saying that I was intending to start
creating more focused jira issues and committing more frequently, much
easier to do now that I am a contrib committer.

This will probably be my last large patch for a while. I had accumulated
a number of changes and had recently broken my copy of HBase with one of
them. (and got it working again this morning).

So if you're trying out HBase, please feel free to enter Jira issues for
the component contrib/hbase if you find something that needs attention.

Also if you're working on one of the to do items listed on the Wiki,
please enter a Jira and assign it to yourself so we can keep track of
who's working on what.
