Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HADOOP-1684) Release notes point to browsable JIRA
Date Sat, 16 Jul 2011 19:18:00 GMT

]

Harsh J resolved HADOOP-1684.
-----------------------------

    Resolution: Not A Problem

Release notes are now being compiled and an editorial pass is made over them for every release
as well. I believe these are at least 70% user friendly, having once been a beginner and read
the release notes from 0.19 -> 0.20. The process is still done in the same way since, I
believe.

I do not think this JIRA is valid anymore (may be cause of time, it was opened in '07 when
nutch hosted hadoop's links).

Thus, Not-a-problem (anymore).

> Currently, the web pages on lucene.apache.org/hadoop link "release notes" as a pointer
to JIRA. http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP?report=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.project:changelog-panel
> The problem with this is that JIRA's really not very user-friendly. Most of the Hadoop
JIRA tickets describe the underlying cause, not the user exposed symptoms, so users who are
nsidering a new release (say, looking for API changes) can't make head or tails of half of
the tickets without being familiar with Hadoop internals.
