Subject Re: [DISCUSS] KIP-584: Versioning scheme for features
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2020 01:24:02 GMT
Hi Jun,

Thanks for the feedback! I have addressed the comments in the KIP.

> 200. In the validation section, there is still the text  "*from*
> {"max_version_level":
> X} *to* {"max_version_level": X’}". It seems that it should say "from X to
> Y"?

(Kowshik): Done. I have reworded it a bit to make it clearer now in this
section:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/KIP-584%3A+Versioning+scheme+for+features#KIP-584:Versioningschemeforfeatures-Validations

> 110. Could we add that we need to document the bumped version of each
> feature in the upgrade section of a release?

(Kowshik): Great point! Done, I have mentioned it in #3 this section:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/KIP-584
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KIP-584>
%3A+Versioning+scheme+for+features#KIP-584
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KIP-584>
:Versioningschemeforfeatures-Whentouseversionedfeatureflags?


Cheers,
Kowshik
