Subject Re: Looking to a Hadoop 3 release
Date Sat, 20 Feb 2016 15:34:46 GMT
Shall we consolidate effort for 2.8.0 and 3.0.0? It doesn't sounds reasonable to have two alpha
releases to go in parallel. Is EC feature the main motivation of releasing hadoop 3 here?
If so, I don't understand why this feature cannot land on 2.8.x or 2.9.x as an alpha feature.

If we release 3.0 in a month like plan proposed below, it means we will have 4 active releases
going in parallel - two alpha releases (2.8 and 3.0) and two stable releases (2.6.x and 2.7.x).
It brings a lot of challenges in issues tracking and patch committing, not even mention the
tremendous effort of release verification and voting.
I would like to propose to wait 2.8 release become stable (may be 2nd release in 2.8 branch
cause first release is alpha due to discussion in another email thread), then we can move
to 3.0 as the only alpha release. In the meantime, we can bring more significant features
(like ATS v2, etc.) to trunk and consolidate stable releases in 2.6.x and 2.7.x. I believe
that make life easier. :)
Thoughts?

Thanks,

Junping

Thanks Andrew for initiating the effort!

+1 on pushing 3.x with extended alpha cycle, and continuing the more stable
2.x releases.
