Hi Jean-Sebastien,

Thanks for your questions! :)

I'll try my best to help with the below (note community is also
in the process of discussing graduation at this point so lots
of exciting things going on with Mesos!)

Nope -- the thing to realize too is that at some point recently Mesos moved
from SVN to Git (even though the project has had a read-only Git mirror
for quite a while and was on Github before coming to the ASF). I wouldn't
exactly count on anything other than the recent pathology work we did
to come up with the CHANGELOG updates.

We'll try and treat that as canonical going forward. If we find some
discrepancies, it's totally possible though.

Nope, we are discussing releasing it at the moment, see:

After 0.12.0 :)

I did a bunch of updating of the JIRA issues during the pathology
(had to reopen them in order to set their component and fix versions).

We're getting our ship in order here, and:

1. Maintaining a proper CHANGELOG
2. Triaging and making sure JIRA is up to date (there is more work to do
I and plenty of others are working on it)
3. Making sure branches and so forth conform to CHANGELOG and to
discussion and
referencable e-mail threads.

That said, we're also in the process of demonstrating that the community
is ready
for graduation as well (also under discussion). So, in short, we're doing
the best
we can :)

If you think you can contribute towards any of the above discussion, happy
to hear
your thoughts.
