Subject KAFKA-5413 and 0.10.x
Date Tue, 28 Nov 2017 20:09:39 GMT

We've recently hit an issue that is marked as "resolved" in the 0.10
branch, but has never been released[1]. There is no known workaround for
the problem.

Upgrading our cluster to a 0.11 version is certainly an option, but is a
risky one given that it could introduce move bugs (especially since it has
a new storage format and a whole slew of new features). We would much
rather upgrade to a 0.10.x release to only obtain this fix that we need.

I understand that the Kafka development team has moved on to 0.11 and now
1.0, but it's also safe to say that there are more users on past versions,
though I have no data to back this statement (maybe someone can?). Given
that the 0.10.x branch is broken and still actively used, it seems like a release would be beneficial to the user community.

My question is whether or not users can help with making such releases
happen. Is there anything that the community can do to help cutting a
release like this one? If not, is there any documentation about how one
would proceed to cut an internal release, e.g.: can the existing release
tooling be leveraged? Otherwise, maybe someone here has gone through this
process and can share their experience?
