Now that Avro 1.9.2 was released I wanted to propose a sort of roadmap for the next release. We already have accumulated a good chunk of new features and fixes that can be released as Avro 1.10.0. I would like to propose that we cut the 1.10.x branch in may 2020 to have a 'major' release exactly one year after 1.9.0. I would like to volunteer as the release manager.
Since it is incrementally hard to backport patches/pull requests from master. I wanted to also propose that starting from now we ONLY backport to the 1.9.x version patches related to security or data correctness issues, but NOT new features, just in case we need to do an extra emergency 1.9.3 release. Do you agree? Other ideas? Issues? Regards, Ismael
