other non-mapreduce applications up and running, and any feedback they may have about the

+1. The alphas need to be out and other things working w/ YARN before
things should be frozen, as that frozen state will have to be carried
forward into the future. At least they might have to be carried
forward, unless there is a big disclaimer "YARN developers -things may
change, get on the mailing list"
