Subject Re: patch maturity and HBase release Was: HBASE-4120 table level priority
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2011 00:00:42 GMT
I agree with Todd's points.

w.r.t. HBASE-4120 and multi-tenant HBase clusters, allow me to point to
this discussion:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4329?focusedCommentId=13096986&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-13096986

I think there are use cases for supporting multi-tenant HBase clusters
where HBASE-4120 provides one avenue.

Cheers
