Subject Re: Apache Hive 1.0 ?
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2014 03:21:29 GMT
Hi Thejas,

Thank you very much for your proposal!

Hadoop did something similar renaming branches to branch-1 and
branch-2. At the time, although I was very much in favor of the new
release numbers, I thought it could have been handled better. Renaming
release branches ended up being very confusing for users and I had a
ton of conversations with users about how releases were related.

In this situation, I feel the situation is similar, we'll release 1.0
which is really just the second maintainence release of the 0.14
branch. Thus it's 1.0 but really it's just 0.14 + some fixes. I feel
this will again be confusing for users. For this important change, I
think we should use a new release vehicle.

Thus, I'd suggest we do the rename in trunk, soon, and then the next
release of Hive will be 1.0.
