Subject Re: [VOTE] Release candidate
Date Thu, 05 May 2011 01:18:24 GMT
Ok. I'll bite.

The point of a vote is to learn what everyone thinks. So far we have learned:

1 - the team that is trying to contribute code and do a release thinks it is ready. 

2 - Cloudera does not think the release is a good idea. 

No more talk between the Team contributing code and cloudera will educate us further  Let's
hear from the rest of the community. 

In parallel on other threads, let's work out how to address concerns. That will be useful
however the vote goes. I promise to continue to work with everyone to help drive releases.

We've called a vote, so let it proceed. That is how apache works.

PS this is my last comment on this thread. Start new ones if you are not casting a vote.

This is a vote.
