Subject a newbie question
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2012 21:36:35 GMT
Hi Dev team,

I am a newbie to HDFS. I just decide to use HDFS in my project and
contributes patches to HDFS in the future. However, I am a bit confused
about the different hadoop branches and code repo which blocks me to setup
my local dev environment.

I realize the version numbers are actually different branches, e.g.
branch-0.21, branch-0.22, branch-0.23, and trunk. I am wondering which
branch should I use and develop on? Which one is most stable? Does trunk
include all patches in other branches such as branch-0.21?

For hadoop common repo, which version should I use for a particular hdfs

Also, I realize the git repo is not updated on time when code is committed
to the svn repo. Should I use the git repo for dev or build a local git
repo on top of svn repo instead?

Sorry for the naive questions. Your help is highly appreciated.
