Interesting discussion, thanks.

I'm sure it took you a fair amount of work to squash patches (which I  
tried too, btw). That, plus the fact that we would need to do a  
similar amount of work for the 10 or so releases we have done after scares me.

As we Nigel and I discussed here, the jumbo  patch and an up-to-date  
CHANGES.txt provides almost all of the benefits we seek and allows all  
of us to get this done very quickly to focus on hadoop-0.22 and beyond.

What do you think?

OTOH, I could get this release done and start squashing patches for  
the sake of completeness as a background activity.
