Subject Re: 0.23.3 release coming soon
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 21:34:24 GMT
There was a discussion about this in April


in which there was unanimous approval of the idea.  I realize that it is
confusing and I feel your pain.  I hate having to explain to our customers
why we are going "backwards" from 1.0 to 0.23.

The community as a whole is working hard and is serious about stabilizing
hadoop-2.  As I said in the original proposal everything that is in 0.23.3
has been merged first to branch-2.

What is more, putting on my Yahoo hat, we have nightly builds and tests of
branch-2.  We want to move to branch-2 as soon as possible, but to meet
our goals to have YARN out in production by the end of this year we had to
cut somewhere.  We also wanted to do this out in the open so the community
could see what was happening, instead of in some private git repository.

If the community has changed their mind and having an official release
labeled 0.23 is too confusing to customers I am happy to not call a vote,
but simply renumber the release and move on.
