Subject Re: [VOTE} Apache Kafka Release 0.8.1 - Candidate 1
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 19:27:10 GMT
Thanks Jay!

I would like to keep the vote open until the end (Tuesday, March 4th, 6pm
PDT) to give anyone voting time to provide feedback on are any other issues
to fix prior to RC2.

More inline, some are new topic discussions not for 0.8.1 necessarily but
related to release candidates in general.

I saw that and kind of overlooked it when I changed my build script, I
should have said something sooner.  Lots of changes but yeah this shouldn't
be one of them.  I will create a JIRA for the gradle patch that will be
required so the tgz is like that post build.  I will also go back and
update the release process wiki as I need to re-order some of my steps to
prevent missing the src upload and anything else. I would even say lets
check this in as a `bin/release.sh` but let me get something working first
(maybe we have a script in 0.8.2 since it worked for 0.8.1).... maybe once
I get better with Gradle (working on it) I can add them in as tasks as we

I will try to reproduce this and create a JIRA could be related to some
other step(s) in the artifact build process.  Will keep an eye to make sure
it is isn't there for RC2.

I think we should default to whatever version has the most broker usage
supported in production environments. If the 0.8.1 broker is most run in
production with 2.9.3 then I think that is what the project should build
against.  Is LinkedIn running Scala version 2.9.3 for 0.8.1? One issue I
have run into is with plug-in jars for the broker only built on another
Scala version than the broker we release (so plugin is for 2.10.3 and
broker is 2.8.0).  So is having the broker in multiple supported Scala
versions as artifacts an option to discuss? It is very easy to-do during
release process. I can stamp out test environments for each at least for
consistent builds.  Also, Scala 2.11 will be out soon too and that could
coincide then for the 0.8.2 (or release as going multiple builds
means more maintenance but not in a bad way imho)?

4. I think the JIRAs in the release notes could be better categorized as

thnx, if you haven't I will create a JIRA for this when I create the others
later tonight/tomorrow.

I will create a JIRA
