Seems everyone is in favor or including a /*non-critical*/ fix to an already cut branch of the a potential release...

Am I missing something?

Why cut a release at all... just have a perpetual cycle of fixes added to develop and users can chose what nightly snapshot build they would want to use..

I'm voting -1 on a non-critical issue, which is existing and worst effect is to fill logs will NPE logs... (yes, not something we want).

I believed that we (as a Geode community) agreed that once a release has been cut, only critical issue fixes will be included. If we continue just continually adding to the ALREADY CUT 1.10 release, where do we stop and when do we release...

Agreed to fixing this. It's impossible for a user to discover they hit an
edge case that we fail to support till they are in prod and restart.

Hello Udo,

Even if it is an existing issue I'd still consider it critical for those
cases on which there are unprocessed events on the persistent queue
after a
restart and the region takes long to recover... you can actually see
millions of *NPEs* flooding the member's logs.
My two cents anyway, it's up to the community to make the final decision.

  From your explanation, it seems this issue is existing and not
critical. Could we possibly hold this for 1.11?

Hello team,

I'd like to propose including the *fix [1]* for *GEODE-7079 [2]* in
Long story short: a *NullPointerException* can be continuously thrown
and flood the member's logs if a serial event processor (either
*async-event-queue* or *gateway-sender*) starts processing events
recovered persistent queue before the actual region to which it was
attached is fully operational.
Note: *no events are lost (even without the fix)* but, if the region
a while to recover, the logs  for the member can grow pretty quickly
the continuously thrown *NPEs.*
Best regards.
