Subject Re: Looking to a Hadoop 3 release

Let's not dismiss this quite so handily.

Sean, Jason, and Stack replied on HADOOP-11656 pointing out that while we
could make classpath isolation opt-in via configuration, what we really
want longer term is to have it on by default (or just always on). Stack in
particular points out the practical difficulties in using an opt-in method
in 2.x from a downstream project perspective. It's not pretty.

The plan that both Sean and Jason propose (which I support) is to have an
opt-in solution in 2.x, bake it there, then turn it on by default
(incompatible) in a new major release. I think this lines up well with my
proposal of some alphas and betas leading up to a GA 3.x. I'm also willing
to help with 2.x release management if that would help with testing this

Even setting aside classpath isolation, a new major release is still
justified by JDK8. Somehow this is being ignored in the discussion. Allen,
historically the voice of the user in our community, just highlighted it as
a major compatibility issue, and myself and Tucu have also expressed our
very strong concerns about bumping this in a minor release. 2.7's bump is a
unique exception, but this is not something to be cited as precedent or

Where does this resistance to a new major release stem from? As I've
described from the beginning, this will look basically like a 2.x release,
except for the inclusion of classpath isolation by default and target
version JDK8. I've expressed my desire to maintain API and wire
compatibility, and we can audit the set of incompatible changes in trunk to
ensure this. My proposal for doing alpha and beta releases leading up to GA
also gives downstreams a nice amount of time for testing and validation.
