RE: [VOTE] - Release 2.0.5-beta
I am +1 to the proposal because it maintains the original cadence a bunch
of us committers/contributors have been working with.

Windows related changes have been made in a conservative manner so as not
to destabilize the code base. The changes are being extensively tested and
validated by community members, especially those from Microsoft.

YARN-397 jiras are mainly enhancements that can be added in a backwards
compatible manner. Would be great if some of them make it but I would not
hold the release for them.

Let us all make the effort to get the release out with all the long
awaited and useful features as planned.

I also feel that some of YARN-397 should go in. If you also feel so,
please put in a +1 to state your intention.

Thanks,
