> Subject: Upgrade to protobuf 2.5.0 for the 2.1.0 release, HADOOP-9845
> Reply-To: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
> I' like to upgrade to protobuf 2.5.0 for the 2.1.0 release.
> As mentioned in HADOOP-9845, Protobuf 2.5 has significant benefits to
> justify the upgrade.
> Doing the upgrade now, with the first beta, will make things easier for
> downstream projects (like HBase) using protobuf and adopting Hadoop 2. If
> we do the upgrade later, downstream projects will have to support 2
> different versions and they my get in nasty waters due to classpath issues.
> I've locally tested the patch in a pseudo deployment of 2.1.0-beta branch
> and it works fine (something is broken in trunk in the RPC layer YARN-885).
> Now, to do this it will require a few things:
> * Make sure protobuf 2.5.0 is available in the jenkins box
> * A follow up email to dev@ aliases indicating developers should install
> locally protobuf 2.5.0
