Thanks a lot for the work done by Suresh and team of community!
I don't think there will be much problems because of platform dependancy as our development is with Java. If we have some native code portings, then dev members has to take care of them.
One question regarding to it:
Ex: if one contributor is giving the patch for some native code porting for some performance improvements and he is interested only in Linux. Then I hope some other contributors will help in getting the windows patch if possible.
If others busy to get that done with in time lines, then I think we can commit Linux support patch and leave one JIRA open for Windows support? [ make sure that porting options configurable and platform check and give release note about platform support..etc?]

Subject: [Vote] Merge branch-trunk-win to trunk
I had posted heads up about merging branch-trunk-win to trunk on Feb 8th. I
am happy to announce that we are ready for the merge.
Here is a brief recap on the highlights of the work done:
- Command-line scripts for the Hadoop surface area
- Mapping the HDFS permissions model to Windows
- Abstracted and reconciled mismatches around differences in Path semantics
in Java and Windows
- Native Task Controller for Windows
- Implementation of a Block Placement Policy to support cloud environments,
more specifically Azure.
- Implementation of Hadoop native libraries for Windows (compression
codecs, native I/O)
- Several reliability issues, including race-conditions, intermittent test
failures, resource leaks.
- Several new unit test cases written for the above changes
Please find the details of the work in CHANGES.branch-trunk-win.txt -
Common changes<http://bit.ly/Xe7Ynv>, HDFS changes<http://bit.ly/13QOSo9>,
and YARN and MapReduce changes <http://bit.ly/128zzMt>. This is the work
ported from branch-1-win to a branch based on trunk.
For details of the testing done, please see the thread -

This was a large undertaking that involved developing code, testing the
entire Hadoop stack, including scale tests. This is made possible only with
the contribution from many many folks in the community. Following people
