Subject 0.20.205 Sustaining Release branch plan and content plan
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2011 10:23:42 GMT
Hi all,
Over the past week a number of people have provided input for patches they
would like to see in 205, with reasons and risk evaluations; please
see the threads
"Content request for 0.20.205 Sustaining Release" and
"Add Append-HBase support in upcoming 20.205".

Obviously plenty of material has accumulated while 204 was being
stabilized.  I would like to
proceed with 205 relatively quickly.  I plan to create the release
branch (branch-0.20.205)
this weekend, 10 September.

The items in group 1 are acceptable to me and will be included.

The items in group 2 are acceptable for inclusion, but someone needs
to speak up for them
in the next three days.  I'm not going to include anything that nobody wants!

The items in group 3  will be the subject of further discussion
between their proponents
and myself.  If they can be committed WITH UNIT TESTS AND APPROPRIATE LEVELS
OF TESTING, I'm still willing to see them in 205.  Most of the items
in the first sub-group
(additional Append issues) have in fact been well-tested in CDH
releases, and would be
valuable to include in 205; it's just a matter of getting the existing
patches committed.
About half of them seem to need no changes, the other half may need to
be re-based.

Again, I plan to create the release branch this weekend.  Thanks for everyone's
