Hadoop 1.1.0 came out on Oct 12. I think there's enough interest to do a
maintenance release with some important patches. I propose to code freeze
branch-1.1 a week from today, Fri 16 Nov, and have a 1.1.1 release
candidate ready for eval & vote starting Mon 19 Nov.
There's also a lot of good new stuff in branch-1. I suggest that on Dec.1,
I create a branch-1.2 from branch-1, with a code freeze on Dec.7, and I'll
create a 1.2.0 release candidate on Mon 10 Dec.
Please provide your +1 if this is acceptable to you.
For 1.1.1, I propose to include the below, and I am of course open to
additional high-priority patches if they are reliable and can be committed
to branch-1.1 by the code freeze date. Let's try to stick to serious bugs
and not new features. Thanks!
