Next weekend, starting the evening of Friday 7 June, a week from tomorrow,
I plan to cut a hadoop-1.2.1-rc0 from the branch-1.2 branch.
This is intended to be a stabilization release of 1.2. I request that
major new back-ports, or any change with significant risk, be put in
branch-1 for the future 1.3.0 release, instead. Bug fixes and low-risk,
high-priority back-ports are welcome in branch-1.2.
If you intend to make submissions or commits to branch-1.2, please make
sure you set the "Target Version" in the Jira ticket to "1.2.1".
BTW, I will do a 1.3.0 release candidate fairly soon after 1.2.1, but I'll
publish the release plan for that after 1.2.1-rc0 is done.
