Re: [Vote] Merge branch-trunk-win to trunk

This is really confusing now.
Does Hadoop intend to support Windows by committing this patch?
If not, when the declaration of the "official" support comes in and
what does it mean?
Committing a 500K patch just to make things "not worth" doesn't make
sense to me.
If the support for this is planned to be the same as today's for
cygwin then what's the point?

I thought it was a simple thing to ask: create a nightly build on
Jenkins and then
duplicate it with additional parameter a patch file.
If you have an internal build system how hard is it to push it to
Apache Jenkins.
Who is the volunteer for this work, please speak up when it can be done.
