Subject Re: [VOTE] Release hadoop-0.23.0-rc0
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 22:48:14 GMT
-1 This is not a release tarball that folks can vote on, since it
contains no source code.  Please cancel this vote and start a new vote
on an actual source code tarball.

As for the name, if we know for certain that it's alpha quality then
we'd probably be doing users a favor to name it that way.  As the
release stabilizes then we should remove such qualifiers, probably
erring on the side of removing them sooner rather than later, so that we
don't end up with a stable release that still has a qualifier.  But it's
your choice what to call it: if enough folks vote +1 then that's the name.

and is not intended to be stable release right-away. The plan is to deploy this to smallish
(500+ nodes) clusters and to start hardening it. This should also help downstream projects
(Pig, Hive, HBase) start testing against the 0.23 line. Expect to see more bug-fix releases
of the branch-0.23 in the forthcoming weeks (0.23.1 etc.)
