Subject Planning for Apache Hadoop 2.6.2
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 17:47:27 GMT
Hi all,

Now that 2.6.1 is done, it’s time to look forward to 2.6.2. Things to take
care of:

 (#1) Branch:

    — The first step in this is getting the branch ready.

    — As I mentioned before [1], the plan is to rebase branch-2.6 based off
branch-2.6.1 i.e. start with 2.6.1 + add patches that are already in
today’s branch-2.6. This is because, as I noted before, the other way
around of applying 150 odd 2.6.1 patches on today’s 2.6 is very cumbersome.

    — Unless I hear otherwise, we will start this process next week.

 (#2) Release:

    — My current idea is to consistently roll out a point release every
month, so for 2.6.2, we can target an RC exactly a month from now (2.6.1
release date)

 (#3) Patches

    — 2.6.2 will have the few patches that committers already put into
branch-2.6. In addition, we should triage and analyze tickets that are
already marked [2] against 2.6.2.

    — Thoughts / inputs welcome on any patches that you want in 2.6.2.
Please use “Target Version = 2.6.2” if you want any patch in the release.
