I guess organizations will rely on CDH with full doc, support...
The individuals will like to use Apache release, and especially 
snapshots/trunk to get latest functionality and get insight of the 

In this specific append/security case, it may be a bit more tricky
The CDH release sounds ahead of the Apache trunk, but I think it's a

implemented/supported in the trunk.
