Subject: Re: About 2.7.4 Release

Our release steps are documented on the wiki:

2.6/2.7:

https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToReleasePreDSBCR

2.8+:
https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToRelease

I think given the push toward 2.8 and 3.0, there's less interest in streamlining the 2.6 and
2.7 release processes. CHANGES.txt is the biggest pain, and that's fixed in 2.8+.

Current pain points for 2.8+ include:

# fixing up JIRA versions and the release notes, though I somewhat addressed this with the
versions script for 3.x # making and staging an RC and sending the vote email still requires
a lot of manual steps # publishing the release is also quite manual

I think the RC issues can be attacked with enough scripting. Steve had an ant file that automated
a lot of this for slider. I think it'd be nice to have a nightly Jenkins job that builds an
RC, since I've spent a day or two for each 3.x alpha fixing build issues.

Publishing can be attacked via a mix of scripting and revamping the darned website. Forrest
is pretty bad compared to the newer static site generators out there (e.g. need to write XML
instead of markdown, it's hard to review a staging site because of all the absolute links,
hard to customize, did I mention XML?), and the look and feel of the site is from the 00s.
We don't actually have that much site content, so it should be possible to migrate to a new
system.
