Subject [DISCUSS] Next Phoenix 5.x release (was "Board report due in ~1 week")
Date Tue, 30 Apr 2019 14:39:20 GMT
Let's leave the other thread for the board report, please. I've changed 
the subject as such.

Thanks for volunteering to be RM.

I'm of the opinion that we should just update to the latest HBase 2.0.x 
line. The compatibility assertions from HBase should make this a no-op 
for us to change versions. There are arguments, however, in both ways 
that we should use the earliest, non-breaking version of HBase.

As the RM, it is your prerogative to tell everyone else how you are 
tracking it :). Figure out what fixVersion you're using on Jira, and 
then either manage the list of open issues in there yourself, or push 
out issues and have folks put issues back in which they feel must be 

Since this is your first time, I would prioritize an rc0 ASAP so that 
you can get comfortable with the process (even if we know that there are 
other fixes which must be made before the final release).
