Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8217) Port online region merge (HBASE-7403) to 0.94
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2013 04:11:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8217?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13617046#comment-13617046

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-8217:

Folks, we have been through this before. I am getting a bit tired of this.

We have no policy against backporting changes into 0.94.
0.94 is feature complete exactly when nobody wants to add features to it. It makes no sense
to declare it such. (It did happen naturally for 0.92 and 0.90, and it will happen organically
for 0.94)

Further whether backporting detracts from 0.95 or later is an entirely besides the point (IMHO).
This is an open source project, everybody is free to provide a patch, and we ought to look
at any provided patch and decide on its merit on a case-by-case basis.

Now, with that out of the way... Whether the code is stable or not is separate discussion.
On the count of the code being new and experimental in trunk I do agree with Jon and Elliot
that we should not backport this at this time (even though I might have said otherwise before).
