Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Hadoop 2.7.4 (RC0)
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2017 20:53:25 GMT
I agree with Brahma on the two issues flagged (having src in the binary
tarball, missing native libs). These are regressions from prior releases.

As an aside, "we release binaries as a convenience" doesn't relax the
quality bar. The binaries are linked on our website and distributed through
official Apache channels. They have to adhere to Apache release
requirements. And, most users consume our work via Maven dependencies,
which are binary artifacts.

http://www.apache.org/legal/release-policy.html goes into this in more
detail. A release must minimally include source packages, and can also
include binary artifacts.

Best,
Andrew
