Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Hadoop 2.6.4 RC0
Date Wed, 10 Feb 2016 02:27:29 GMT
Thanks Yongjun for identifying and proposing this change to 2.6.4. I think this is the right
thing to do and check for following releases. For 2.6.4, it seems unnecessary to create another
release candidate for this issue as we only kicking off a new RC build when last RC has serious
problem in functionality. The vote progress is quite smoothly so far, so it seems unlikely
that we will create a new RC. However, I think there are still two options here:
Option 1:  in final build, adopt change of HDFS-9629 that only updates the footer of Web UI
to show year 2016.
Option 2: skip HDFS-9629 for 2.6.4 and adopt it later for 2.6.5.
I prefer Option 1 as this is a very low risky change without affecting any functionality,
and we allow non-functional changes (like release date, etc.) happen on final build after
RC passed. I would like to hear the voices in community here before acting for the next step.

Hi Junping,

Thanks a lot for leading the effort on 2.6.4.

We were discussing in HDFS-9629, and have agreement on adding an additional
step in the release process to update the year in the webui footer. See


I noticed that the current RC for 2.6.4 still has the year of 2014 (the
example steps in the above link is validated on 2.6.4 RC0). So the steps I
proposed in the link could be applied when we create new RCs.

Thanks Akira for +1 on this proposed additional release step. Once we have
an agreement on the details, we will update the wiki page accordingly.
