Subject RE: provide a 0.20-append tarball?
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 10:55:51 GMT
For CDH specific compatibility issues beyond general stuff like does it work, I think users
should be pointed to Cloudera for support.

For security issues, they probably won't find much help here so would need to go to Cloudera
or some stuff might be answerable on the HDFS lists since security is in Apache 0.22 branch.

We also want to support HDFS 0.22 at some point so being aware of potential issues is at least
somewhat relevant for the community at large even if not using CDH.

The line that I believe should be drawn, and I think most have agreed, is that we should be
compatible with and ship with an official Apache Hadoop release.  Having something Apache
to ship with was one of the motivations of the 20-append branch.

So yeah, the plan is to do an official 20-append Apache release.  Some effort needs to go
into it, so when is an open question.  Don't know if there's a release manager yet, I think
Dhruba might have stated so when we made the branch but don't exactly recall.  However there
is one very common theme in the 20-append open JIRAs :)


There are currently 15 open issues listed.  The blocker, at least, is already committed to
20-append and is just open because it's not in trunk yet, so the number may be off a bit.
