Subject Re: Heads Up - hadoop-2.0.3 release
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 14:52:41 GMT
Happy new year folks!

I'm glad to see that we are down to the last couple of blockers I hope we can resolve in the
next 24-hrs or so.

Once done, I'll create a branch-2.0.3-alpha to unblock branch-2 for commits targeted towards
the next release, create the new fix-versions in jira and spin the RC.
Committers - after the branch is created, please use only the new fix-version (2.0.4) and
check with me before you commit to branch-2.0.3-alpha. Thanks.

As always, I'd appreciate help to resolve any unexpected surprises and also to help verify
the RC.

Hopefully we can start the new year with a great release, there are lots of goodies in 2.0.3-alpha.

in Jan... thus targetting 2.0.4 (as a beta?). By then we'll also have wider rollouts of YARN
and would have fixed some more issues we've seen at very high scale deployments at Y!. Sounds
like the right time to do a beta release to me.
