Ishan Chhabra commented on HBASE-11642:
---------------------------------------

[~lhofhansl], I agree with your reasoning of maintaining 0.94 a little longer (given the incompatibility
and a stop the world upgrade process), but I am worried we might end up in a Python 2.x 3.x
like scenario. Declaring an EOL for 0.94 might be a good way to trigger upgrades for many
clients who have not done it yet and will bring more focus to the community (I see many JIRAs
with won't backport for 0.94, but some patches attached, and people will keep on coming back
to the mailing lists seeking help for these and other issues).
