Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Spark 3.1.0 (RC1)
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2021 05:04:14 GMT
I think that posting the 3.1.0 maven release was an accident and we're
going to 3.1.1 RCs is the right step forward.
I'd ask for maybe a day before cutting the 3.1.1 release, I think is also a blocker (at
first I thought it was just a test issue, but Dongjoon pointed out the NPE
happens in prod too).

I'd also like to echo the: it's totally ok we all make mistakes especially
in partially manual & partially automated environments, I've created a
bunch of RCs labels without recognizing they were getting pushed
