Subject Re: [RESULT] Release plan for Hadoop 2.0.5
Date Wed, 15 May 2013 16:31:37 GMT
I have a question about dev process in light of this vote.  As a
contributor, how do I set the Target Version/s field correctly in jiras to
inform reviewers and committers of the proper destination for my code?
 Before this vote, my rough guideline was "if Windows-specific, then 3.0.0,
else 2.0.X and 3.0.0".  After this vote, it seems there are some additional
nuances, such that incompatible changes need to target 2.1.X + 3.0.0, and
perhaps simple bug fixes like adding a null check need to target 2.0.X +
2.1.X + 3.0.0.

As others have stated, there may even be ambiguity or disagreement about
the definition of "simple bug fixes".  The specifics are difficult to
anticipate, so committers may need to come to agreement on some general
guidelines, and then debate further as needed on individual patches.

If this is generally confusing for the community (not just my own
confusion), then I'll volunteer to add notes in the HowToContribute wiki
once we have the answers.
