Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Supporting Hadoop-1 and experimental features
Date Thu, 14 May 2015 17:44:52 GMT

+1 on the idea.

Having a stable release branch with ongoing fixes where we do not drop
major features would be good all around.

It lets us accelerate the pace of development, drop major features or
rewrite them entirely without dragging everyone else kicking & screaming
into that release.
