Subject Re: Discussions - Re: [VOTE] Release candidate 0.20.203.0-rc0

Hello!

I guess I am concerned as a user of hadoop that the only way to get an “endorsed” up-to-date
version of hadoop one has to abandon the community and “trust” a commercial release with
its special sauce.

I am just hoping that the community can put together a nice stable up-to-date patched version.
 That’d be nice.  It probably won’t change my commercial deploy, but it would give me
something to compare with :)

Just my $0.02 (CND)
Cheers
James.
