Re: [DISCUSS] Hadoop Security Release off Yahoo! patchset

This is incremental work on 0.20.  We're happy to support any branch naming strategy the community likes, but sticking with 20.<minor> seems like the right default approach.  

Let's discuss 1.0 issues on another thread.  Our priority is to get our work into other folks hands.
