Subject Re: [VOTE] Release hadoop-1.x.x off branch-0.20-security
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2011 07:19:59 GMT
So, does this mean then any 2.x.x release will have *all* of the features
of the 1.x.x ?  Anything not in there should be deprecated, right?

If not, then it is not really linear as most software projects are
providing versions that have new features on top of the support for
previous ones.

I am hard pressed to think of any software release ever where a feature
that folks want ONLY exists in a previous version. I might be off base here
as the trunk might represent the ALL of the features in this branch????

So if 2.x.x will have security, append (and all of the other goodies that
are in 1.x.x) then it makes sense otherwise it is just as confusing but
just re-labled.

Sorry, trying to get a grasp of all of this seems to be moving quickly and
not sure if the branch / trunk is merging or just being re-labeled for *
marketing* purposes.

If I am having confusion then confusion will come further from folks trying
to get into Hadoop also.  Just saying.

All of the good work that everyone has done is awesome, just trying to
understand some straight line path of releases.   This is not a new idea
and typical of what the software community as a whole expects (speaking for
the 99%).  If 0.23 trunk release is a representation of the branch release
0.20.20X.X with all of the patches there, then fantastic but have not heard
that mentioned (and honestly it is very hard to keep track).

any clarity would be helpful, thanx
