Subject Re: First release candidate for HBase 0.99.2 (RC0) is available. Please vote by 12/06/2014
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2014 19:04:57 GMT
I think this is still a case-by-case basis. The problem is that we cannot
keep track of what methods/classes that Phoenix depends on without Phoenix
tells us first. There is a special marker
InterfaceAudience.LimitedPrivate(Phoenix) just for that purpose.

For some of the stuff (like SplitTransaction) for example, I do not think
that we should have any restrictions in HBase in terms of refactoring. For
things like MetaReader, etc I can see that having more stable interfaces
there will help both projects.
