Yes, 0.22 has both append and security. 0.22 also has the nice feature of
following the Apache release guidelines rather than relying on the patch set
of an independent entity, whether it's Cloudera, Facebook, or Yahoo.

Agreed! Nigel has done a great job getting the ball rolling on the 0.22
release. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone burn down the blockers that
have been identified.
