Subject Re: [VOTE] Merge HDFS-6584 Archival Storage to trunk
Date Mon, 08 Sep 2014 03:09:15 GMT
I have closely observed all work done in this. This featute is very
important for the storage only problems.

Major work done by Nicholas and later Jing.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in this.

I feel the code is in good state to be merged to trunk.
+1 for the merge.

Regards,
Vinay
