HBase >> mail # dev >> Heads-up! Branching 0.96 (actually 0.95) this weekend

Re: Heads-up! Branching 0.96 (actually 0.95) this weekend
I am generally fine with branching.

Looking at the blocker / critical bug list for 0.96, the number of such
issues (39 as of writing of this email) increased compared to a few days
People marked their JIRAs this way so that their work gets picked up for

Considering that all the fixes for these issues would be integrated twice
once branching happens, I wonder if there should be a short buffer before
branching so that some of these high priority fixes can go in.

Just my two cents.
