Re: Heads Up - hadoop-2.0.3 release
Happy new year folks!

I'm glad to see that we are down to the last couple of blockers I hope we can resolve in the next 24-hrs or so.

Once done, I'll create a branch-2.0.3-alpha to unblock branch-2 for commits targeted towards the next release, create the new fix-versions in jira and spin the RC.
Committers - after the branch is created, please use only the new fix-version (2.0.4) and check with me before you commit to branch-2.0.3-alpha. Thanks.

As always, I'd appreciate help to resolve any unexpected surprises and also to help verify the RC.

Hopefully we can start the new year with a great release, there are lots of goodies in 2.0.3-alpha.

By then we'll also have wider rollouts of YARN and would have fixed some more issues we've seen at very high scale deployments at Y!. Sounds like the right time to do a beta release to me.
