Re: How do we determine 'stable' pig version?
Couple of suggestions:

(1) I think we are trying to go for a more frequent release model and in that case it would make sense to keep perhaps 3 releases. Based on our experience at Yahoo, Pig 10 is the really stable release. We recently found a couple of critical bugs in 11 for which we posted patches. Also the community knows that we delayed a couple of key bugs in 12 till 12.1
(2) Our documentation needs to be consistent with the number of releases we advertise as supported. Our docs currently go all the way to Pig 9.

Hi, Koji,
Here is the criteria I use:
(i) How do we determine how many releases to show on the front download
We usually keep two most recent releases on the front page according to

(ii) How do we determine which release is considered 'stable' ?
Here "stable" means passing all tests, peer reviewed. It does not mean
production "stable". Actually there is no way for us to know production
"stable" after user download it, use it and gives feedback. That's why we
will continue fixing bugs after major release. and make minor releases.
