Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Aligning master with Hadoop 3 and create separate 0.9.x line
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2018 15:09:21 GMT
+1 for incrementing the required Hadoop version from 2.7 as long as we
continue to push bugfixes to the 0.9 line for a while.  We currently
have a "hadoop28" profile in Tez which is mostly compatible with
Hadoop 3.x, but it does not get much testing.  There is no release
vehicle for it, and it does not even get tested from the precommit
build.  Promoting this or a 3.x profile to the main build is the most
straightforward way to get it tested and released in an
easy-to-consume form.

This does mean we would need to maintain two release lines for a
while, at least until users and downstream projects migrate away from
Hadoop 2.7.  We've done two lines before (even three, if we consider
the days of 0.9.x, 0.8.x, and 0.7.x all co-existing), and in this case
I think the cost of maintaining those two lines is worth it to move
the project forward as the stack migrates to Hadoop 3.x.
