Subject Re: Maintenance of Hadoop 0.21 branch?
Date Sun, 10 Apr 2011 04:53:02 GMT
I'm fine w/ abandoning but that needs to be clearly communicated with changes to the website.
 This is complicated by the fact that it looks like 0.21 docs are the only ones on the website
for hdfs and mapreduce (which seems like a bug):
http://hadoop.apache.org/hdfs/docs/
http://hadoop.apache.org/mapreduce/docs/
Common has a bunch of back revs:
http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/
