== How can I help test this release? ==
If you are a Spark user, you can help us test this release by taking an
existing Spark workload and running on this release candidate, then
reporting any regressions from 1.6.0.

== What justifies a -1 vote for this release? ==
This is a maintenance release in the 1.6.x series.  Bugs already present in
1.6.0, missing features, or bugs related to new features will not
necessarily block this release.

== What should happen to JIRA tickets still targeting 1.6.0? ==
1. It is OK for documentation patches to target 1.6.1 and still go into
branch-1.6, since documentations will be published separately from the
2. New features for non-alpha-modules should target 1.7+.
3. Non-blocker bug fixes should target 1.6.2 or 2.0.0, or drop the target
