That is trunk of HBase right? IOW, we don't really have a released version
that is compatible with .22?

IOW, a single build of Hive and Pig being able to communicate
with different versions of Hadoop?

This is fine, but sound more time consuming than what HBase is
doing (providing profiles to build against different versions of Hadoop).

Regardless of how time consuming either approach is, I guess my
fundamental question would be -- do we have any kind of commitment
from the downstream guys to have a release compatible with .22?

I guess I'm just wondering how these timelines of downstream
components will affect usability of any Hadoop release (be it .22 or .23).
Any thoughts on that?
