Subject Re: Apache Hadoop 2.8.3 Release Plan
Date Tue, 21 Nov 2017 19:16:51 GMT
Thanks Andrew and Wangda for comments!

To me, an improvement with 17 patches is not a big problem as this is self-contained and I
didn't see a single line of delete/update on existing code - well, arguably, patches with
only adding code can also have big impact but not likely the case here.

While the dependency discussions on HADOOP-14964 are still going on, I will leave the decision
to JIRA discussion based on which approach we will choose(shaded?) and impact. If we cannot
make consensus in short term, probably we have to miss this in 2.8.3 release.

Okay. Last call for blocker/critical fixes landing on branch-2.8.3. RC0 will get cut-off shortly.

Subject: Re: Apache Hadoop 2.8.3 Release Plan

Thanks Junping for driving this.

For the bug fix vs. improvement, it is actually very hard to define, improvement could be
self-contained and useful, bug fix could be dangerous in some cases. To me, If an improvement
fixed some existing use case, and the fix is self-contained. I will be open to bring such
fix to maintenance release. For example, in 2.8.2, we back ported CapacityScheduler intra
queue preemption https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-2113. It is a big change in terms
of patch size, but since it fixes broken use case (balance user usage under Capacity Scheduler
leaf queue), we backported it to 2.8.2 after thorough tests and validations by Yahoo.

I'm not quite familiar with HADOOP-14964, I will leave the decision to committers who know
more about the field.

Just my 2 cents.

The Aliyun OSS code isn't a small improvement. If you look at Sammi's
a 17 patch series that is being backported in one shot. What we're talking
about is equivalent to merging a feature branch in a maintenance release. I
see that Kai and Chris are having a discussion about the dependency
changes, which indicates this is not a zero-risk change either. We really
should not be changing dependency versions in a maintenance unless it's
because of a bug.

It's unfortunate from a timing perspective that this missed 2.9.0, but I
still think it should wait for the next minor. Merging a feature into a
maintenance release sets the wrong precedent.
