Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Hadoop 2.0.4.1-alpha
Date Thu, 30 May 2013 23:08:46 GMT
FWIW, not that I have a dog in this fight, but the only release with a
4th number (not including .0 like the 0.20.20x releases did) we had
was:

http://hadoop.6.n7.nabble.com/VOTE-Release-0-17-2-1-rc-0-td13398.html

0.17.2 was missing some native libs so 0.17.2.1 was released to fix
that critical issue instead of calling it .3

J-D
