nobody is backporting patches to ASF 2.4 these days; 2.5.x is getting
security fixes, 2.6 functionality. If you do want it on 2.4 then that will
have to be your own fork of it, with all the test problems that follow.
Look to Apache Bigtop for integration testing there.

w.r.t to 2.6, if the code is the same on both branches, we can usually just
commit to 2.6 then cherry pick forwards to branch-2 & trunk.

if a different patch is needed, then that needs to be a separate JIRA.

One thing we do worry about is testing of this stuff, which we do
automatically with  jenkins:

There is a solaris machine in the ASF jenkins farm, getting some help
setting this up would be great. You wont have permissions to edit the
settings —if you have a colleague working on ASF projects then they might,
so getting them to help would aid setup.
