I like the idea of same source / same release and put Ozone's source under a different directory.
Like Owen mentioned, It gonna be important for all parties to keep a regular and shorter release cycle for Hadoop, e.g. 3-4 months between minor releases. Users can try features and give feedbacks to stabilize feature earlier; developers can be happier since efforts will be consumed by users soon after features get merged. In addition to this, if features merged to trunk after reasonable tests/review, Andrew's concern may not be a problem anymore: bq. Finally, I earnestly believe that Ozone/HDSL itself would benefit from being a separate project. Ozone could release faster and iterate more quickly if it wasn't hampered by Hadoop's release schedule and security and compatibility requirements.
