I believe there are plans for an 0.18.4 release eventually, though a new
feature like a new DFS is unlikely to be included. I would concentrate on
integrating against trunk rather than a past release. If trunk is
inconvenient since it's a moving target, you could integrate against
branch-20. While a lot of people are currently using 0.18, I anticipate that
most users will be switching over to 0.20 in the next couple of months.
* Should we create separate Jira's for the two releases, or can we create a
single Jira to cover the 0.18 and trunk releases?
Single JIRA should be fine - just post multiple patches.
Thanks for your help. We'd like to make sure we're facilitating the
so any suggestions are appreciated.
In general you should be aware that you should integrate as a new project in
the contrib/ dir. If all goes well you shouldn't need to make any patches
that touch Hadoop itself.
