Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Backporting Regionserver Groups (HBASE-6721) to 1.x and 0.98
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2016 15:05:44 GMT
I don't think we need to do a major for RS groups. 

I do think Elliott's points can be addressed by getting a 2.0 out the door soon containing
whatever we have on deck now to go in. 

Probably not going to satisfy everyone here - but maybe?
