Subject [VOTE] officially stop supporting hadoop 0.20.x in hive 0.14 ?
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2014 22:53:48 GMT
I think it is time to revisit the support for hive support for hadoop
0.20. Trying to maintain support for it puts additional burden on hive

The last hadoop 0.20.x version was released on Feb 2010. Hadoop 1.0
was released in Dec 2011.
I believe most users have moved on to hadoop 2.x or at least hadoop
1.x . The users if any that are still on hadoop 0.20 probably don't
tend to upgrade their hive versions as well.

With the move to maven for builds in hive 0.13, we don't have the
ability to compile against hadoop 0.20. (Nobody has complains about
that AFAIK). I am not sure if hive 0.13 works well against hadoop
0.20, as it is not clear if that combination is in use. Also, most
commercial vendors seem to be focussing on testing it against hadoop

I think it is time to do away with this added burden of attempting to
support hadoop 0.20.x versions.

Here is my +1 for officially stopping support for hadoop 0.20.x in hive 0.14 .
