Subject Reminder: Apache committers have access to a free MSDN license
Date Sat, 06 Jun 2015 16:35:17 GMT
If you are a committer on any Apache project (not just Hadoop), then you
have access to a free MSDN license.  The details are described here.

https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/donated-licenses/msdn-licen
se-grants.txt


You'll need to authenticate with your Apache credentials.

This means that all Hadoop committers, and a large number of contributors
who are also committers on other Apache projects, are empowered to review
and test patches on Windows.

After getting the free MSDN license, you can download the installation iso
for Windows Server 2008 or 2010 and run it in a VirtualBox VM (or your
hypervisor of choice). Instructions for setting up a Windows development
environment have been in BUILDING.txt for a few years.

This would prevent situations where patches are blocked from getting
committed while waiting for me or any other individual to test.
