We do not have the answers on Hadoop API stabilization and we are not likely to get this for a while given the state of the Hadoop project at the moment. I don't think we can block our progress based on this.
I am fine if we categorize the vote under Release Plan action. As you pointed out, it does not change the rules for the vote.

Hmmm, I still did not see answers to my questions around the timelines for the Hadoop API stabilization which will influence my vote on this topic.
Apart from that voting for a release that is not yet planned is not defined in the bylaws. I think its closer to the "Release Plan" than it is to "Product Release" action. Irrespective, both of them require Lazy Majority
Release Plan Defines the timetable and actions for a release. The plan also nominates a Release Manager. Lazy majority Active committers 3
Product Release When a release of one of the project's products is ready, a vote is required to accept the release as an official release of the project. Lazy Majority Active PMC members 3

Subject: [VOTE] Pig 1.0!
We had a lively discussion last week regarding what version number to assign to the major release following Pig 0.9. The discussion can be seen here: http://tinyurl.com/4ng8upa.
Based on the discussion, it seemed that most people were on-board with making next release Pig 1.0 as long as we have done good job stabilizing post Pig 0.9.
I would like to call vote on calling the release Pig 1.0. I believe it is important to finalize the version number prior to starting the work on the release. I believe that this vote is part of Product Release Action and as such is subject to Lazy Majority vote: http://pig.apache.org/bylaws.html.
Please, complete the vote by the end of this Thursday, 3/10. Please, note that anybody is welcome to vote but only PMC votes are binding.
