Subject Re: continuing releases on Apache Hadoop 2.6.x

+1. Early Dec sounds too early for 2.6.3 release given we only have 18 patches since recently
release 2.6.2.
We should nominate more fixes and wait a while for the feedback on 2.6.2.

Subject: Re: continuing releases on Apache Hadoop 2.6.x

I see 18 JIRAs across the sub-projects as of now in 2.6.3. Seems like we will have a reasonable
number of fixes if we start an RC early december.

In the mean while, we should also review 2.7.3 and 2.8.0 blocker / critical list and see if
it makes sense to backport any of those into 2.6.3.

I'd like to pick up this email discussion again. It is time that we started
thinking about the next release in the 2.6.x line. IMO we want to walk the
balance between maintaining a reasonable release cadence and getting a good
amount of high-quality fixes. The timeframe is a little tricky as the
holidays are approaching. If we have enough fixes accumulated in
branch-2.6, some time early December might be a good target for cutting the
first release candidate. Once we miss that window, I think we are looking
at next January. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.
