Subject Hadoop Release Schedule
Date Mon, 09 Nov 2009 17:36:49 GMT
If one goes to the Hadoop-Common JIRA and clicks on the RoadMap Option and 
selects "All Versions" as the scope, one is able to see the different 
releases being worked on. In some cases in the past, I've seen what I 
construe to be release dates next the Release Heading. For example, Hadoop 
0.21.0 has 05/June/09 next to it. Are these dates effectively a stake in 
the ground for the community to work towards ? Is this report the 
definitive location to identify how close a particular tagged release is 
to being made generally available ? 

The way it appears to me is that once all the issues tagged for a 
particular release are closed and the release appears to work well in 
system testing (done independently by the community), a vote is taken and 
the release is made available. i.e. a release date that is driven more by 
the closure of open issues and features than a particular date the 
community is working towards. Is that correct ? It seems in the past that 
there has been a release about every 3 months.

Lastly, what about releases that appear to have been passed by, such as 
0.18.4 ?

Kind regards
Steve Watt
