Subject Re: [VOTE] Back-port TFile to Hadoop 0.20
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2009 20:39:46 GMT
I think we are trying to change an existing Apache-Hadoop process. The
current process specifically says that a released branch cannot have new
features checked into it.

This vote seems to be proposing that "If a new feature does not change any
existing code (other than build.xml), then it is ok to check in that feature
to an existing release branch".

If my understanding is right, then +1 on the above proposal.

thanks,
dhruba
