Subject Re: How long will we support Hadoop 0.20.2?

First off, I have to apologize, I didn't know there would be such
passions on both sides of the 0.20.2 argument!

No worries man, Hadoop versions are something worth ranting about.
IMHO Hadoop has a history of changing API's and breaking end users.
However, I feel this is improving.

Very sorry if I came across with the opinion that we should "drop
0.20.2 now" because of the constructor issue. The issue brought up
0.20.2's age in my mind and the logical next step is to ask how long
we plan on supporting it! :) I like the time bounding idea and I feel
6 months is reasonable. FWIW, the 1.X series is stable for my needs.
