Subject Re: Next releases
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2013 08:15:05 GMT
Starting afresh with 2.2.1 and keeping it as small as possible sounds
reasonable to me.

Would love to get 2.3 out soon.  To that end, how would people feel about
having code and/or feature freeze and/or ship dates?  We've been way behind
out goals for recent releases. Having actual targets on the calendar would
help us achieve the regular release cadence that can really benefit both
downstream projects and ourselves.  Without this, we get in the habit of
stuffing changes into the closest release, even if minor or patch, for fear
that the next will be many months away.

Vinod, Zhijie, or Mayank, please correct me if I'm wrong, but my intuition
is that end-of-year is a little unrealistic for YARN-321.  Will the ~30
working days before the end of the year be enough to complete the feature,
stabilize it, bring APIs to the point that we won't need to break them in
the future, and merge the branch?  Could we either push the feature out or
aim for the end of January instead?

Assuming the latter, some strawman dates:
Feature freeze - 1/6
Code freeze - 1/16
Release - 1/30

Lastly, I'd like to add finer-grained CPU scheduling a la YARN-1089 to the
target features.
