Subject Re: Ask for ARM CI for spark
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2019 09:44:48 GMT
Hi @Sean Owen <> ,

Thanks for your idea.

We may use the bad words to describe our request. That's true that we
cannot just say "Spark support ARM from release 3.0.0", and we also cannot
say the past releases cannot run on ARM. But the reality is the past
releases didn't get a fully test on ARM like the current testing we do. And
that's true that current CI system have no resources can fit this kind
request(test on ARM).

And please try to think, if a user wants to run lastest Spark release on
ARM(even the old releases), but community doesn't say that the specific
Spark release get testing on ARM. I think the users might think there is a
risk run on ARM, if he/she has no choice, they have to run spark on ARM,
they will build the CI system by themselves. That's very expensive. Right?
But now, community will do the same testing on ARM in the upstream, this
will save the users' resources. That's the reason announcing by community
in some ways is official and the best. Such as "In XXX release, Spark gets
fully testing on ARM" or "In XXX release, Spark community integrated an ARM
CI system. ". Once user see that, he/she would be very comfortable to use
Spark on ARM. ;-)

Thanks for your paitent, we just discuss here, if I do something not good,
please feel free to correct and discuss. ;-)
