Subject Re: Branching for 0.92 [WAS -> Re: [DISCUSSION] Accumulo, another BigTable clone, has shown up on Apache Incubator as a proposal]
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 20:37:15 GMT
I'm still planning on branching this friday, even if all criticals and
blockers are not yet fixed.  Friday for sure will mean feature freeze.
 Are there any features other than security that we need to get in
before we branch?
