-Re: Java 7 and Hadoop

I've seen more and more people using java 7. We are also planning to move
to java 7 due to the eol of java 6 that Scott referenced.
What are folks thoughts on making it officially supported by Hadoop? Is
there a process for this or is it simply updating the wiki Eli mentioned
after sufficient testing?
