Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Hadoop 2.1.0-beta

Looks like this RC has gone stale and lots of bug fixes went into 2.1 and 2.1.0 branches and there are 4-5 outstanding blockers. And from what I see in CHANGES.txt files there seems to be a confusion about which branch to get in what.

I'm blowing off the current 2.1.0 release branch so that we can create a fresh release branch and call voting on that. I'll fix CHANGES.txt entries as well as JIRA fix version for bugs committed recently if there are inconsistencies.

Let me know if something is amiss while I do this.

Thanks,
+Vinod

However, this will require adding of differently-named apis ( different urls in case of the webservices ) and make the current version of the api deprecated and/or obsolete. YARN-818 which is currently patch available also changes behavior.

Perhaps Vinod can chime in if he is aware of any other such jiras under YARN-386 which should be considered compat-related blockers for a 2.1.0 RC.
