Subject Re: Timeline for Spark 2.3
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2017 10:07:26 GMT
The original timeline was just +6 months from last planned release, so
there was nothing too magic about it. That was pushed from +4 . The only
risk here is that an extra month becomes 2, 3, and so users aren't getting
the other 1000 fixes. But no particular problem with moving it back.
