Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Hadoop 2.0.4.1-alpha
Date Thu, 30 May 2013 22:11:26 GMT
Hi Cos,
I would also request that you renumber the release candidate to just
three-numbers, hence "2.0.5-alpha".

Arun, are you willing to start the 2.1.x name-space for your next release,
so that 2.0.x-alpha can become an intermediate stabilization branch as Cos
and Konst want?

I just think that using four-number schemes was symptomatic of the
near-forking we had back in the 0.20.xxx.y days, and I really don't want to
go back there.  Especially since you could say that "0.20.xxx.y" is just
three significant numbers, the leading zero being inconsequential.

So, would you please consider using 2.0.5-alpha?

As for the "2.0.5-SNAPSHOT" in the branch-2 versioning, that's standard
usage.  Whoever makes the 2.0.5 release (or any "next" release) is expected
to update the parent branch's SNAPSHOT default versioning, per
HowToReleasePostMavenization#Branching<https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToReleasePostMavenization#Branching>,
step 6.

Thanks,
--Matt
