Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Hadoop Security Release off Yahoo! patchset

I'm willing to discuss any and all options, for a very short period.

Technically you have a reasonable point, Doug has suggested this in  
the past too. If everyone agrees, fine; if not, I'm do not want hung  
up on a release number. I just *do not* want a controversy.

As I mentioned, I'm looking to finish this up in a couple of weeks;  
so, I could do without a long discussion on the on the critical path.

I'm happy to go with a reasonable compromise, if not, hadoop-0.20.100  
is what I'm priming for.

Heck, if Stack wants to call the append release (not sure how far  
ahead he is) as hadoop-0.20.100, I'm willing to call this  

All I care about is having a distinct release number from 0.20.2 (our  
last stable release). Again, I just want to get a release into the  
hands of our users. Please, let's resolve this quickly. Please.
