Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Kafka Release 0.8.0 - Candidate 5
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 16:59:48 GMT
General future thought comment first: lets be careful please to raising
issues as show stoppers that have been there previously (especially if
greater than one version previous release back also has the problem) and
can get fixed in a subsequent release and is only now more pressing because
we know about them... seeing something should not necessarily always create
priority (sometimes sure, of course but not always that is not the best way
to manage changes).  The VOTE thread should be to artifacts and what we are
releasing as proper and correct per Apache guidelines... and to make sure
that the person doing the release doesn't do something incorrect ... like
using the wrong version of JDK to build =8^/.  If we are not happy with
release as ready to ship then lets not call a VOTE and save the prolonged
weeks that drag out with so many release candidates.  The community suffers
from this.

ok, now on to RC5 ...lets extend the vote until 12pm PT tomorrow ...
hopefully a few more hours for other folks to comment and discuss the
issues you raised with my $0.02852425 included below and follow-ups as they
become necessary... I am also out of pocket in a few hours until tomorrow
morning so if it passed I would not be able to publish and announce or if
failed look towards RC6 anyways =8^)

Ok, I can do a better job with 0.8.1 but I am not sure this is very
different than beta1 and not necessarily a show stopper for 0.8.0 requiring
another release candidate, is it?  I think updating the release docs and
rmdir .git after the rm -fr and rm .gitignore moving forward makes sense.

I fixed this already not only in the binary release
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1131 but also in the JAR files
that are published to Maven
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1133are you checking from
http://people.apache.org/~joestein/kafka-0.8.0-candidate5/ because I just
downloaded again and it looks alright to me.  If not then definitely this
RC should be shot down because it does not do what we are saying it is
doing.. but if it is wrong can you be more specific and create a JIRA with
the fix because I thought I got it right already... but if not then lets
get it right because that is why we pulled the release in RC3

I don't think this is a showstopper is it?  can't this wait for 0.8.1 and
not hold up the 0.8.0 release?

I didn't have this issue with java maven pom or scala sbt so maybe
something more ivy ant specific causing this?  folks use gradle too so I
expect some feedback at some point to that working or not perhaps in 0.8.1
or even 0.9 we can try to cover every way everyone uses and make sure they
are all good to go moving forward... perhaps even some vagrant, docker,
puppet and chef love too (which I can contribute if folks are interested)

In any case can you create a JIRA and throw a patch up on it please,
thanks! IMHO this is for 0.8.1 though ... what are thoughts here...

it would break my heart to have lots of binding +1 votes and 2 non-binding
votes one +1 and one -1, I still haven't cast my vote yet was hoping
everyone would get their voices and everything in before calling the VOTE
closed or canceled.  I really don't mind preparing a release candidate 6
that is not the issue at all but I think we need to be thoughtful about
using the release candidates to fixe things that should be fixed and part
of the releases themselves where the release candidates are to make sure
that the preparation of the build is not wrong (like it was in RC4 where I
used JDK 7 by accident).
