I'm not proposing any more back- or forward-porting than will be done 
anyway.  I'm proposing we commit all the 0.20 security patches to a repo 
at Apache.  This could be as simple as copying Y!'s github repo 
wholesale to a branch at Apache.  Or, with a bit more effort, we can 
probably apply the patches from Jira in the right order.  Otherwise, 
Cloudera, Facebook and others will have to duplicate this effort.  Then 
bugfix patches and releases can be made against this repo rather than 
everyone having to assemble and maintain their own 0.20 security 
patchset from scratch.  Everyone will be using this patchset for quite 
some time.  Why shouldn't we share a repo that contains it?
