Hi,

We have not seen any requests for delay so we are performing the merge
at 2 pm PST today. Please, don't use SVN till all clear message is sent.

Thanks,

Olga

> the old trunk via the following command:
>  
> svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/hadoop/pig/branches/pretypes
>  
> (3) We strongly encourage you to move your work on to the 
> latest trunk code as it is more efficient and is the code 
> that will be supported going forward. The new code is not 
> completely backward compatible and will require changes 
> especially in the area of the UDFs. We have documentation to 
> ease the transition:
>  
> http://wiki.apache.org/pig/TrunkToTypesChanges - document

> http://wiki.apache.org/pig-data/attachments/FrontPage/attachme
> nts/plrm.h
> tm - PigLating manual for the latest code 
> http://wiki.apache.org/pig/UDFManual - Manual for using and 
> writing UDFs with the latest code
>  
> (4) If you are a owner of a UDF in the piggybank, make sure 
> that your UDFs are transitioned to the latest code. 
>  
> Let us know if you have questions or concerns. Unless we here 
> serious objections between now and Monday, we will go ahead
