After a lot of back and forth and information sharing, its clear in my mind that branches are not required for contrib projects.
My vote remains -1 Thanks, Santhosh -----Original Message----- From: Milind A Bhandarkar [mailto:mili...@yahoo-inc.com] Sent: Monday, August 17, 2009 5:32 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Proposal to create a branch for contrib project Zebra IANAC, but my (non-binding) vote is also -1. I think all the improvements and feature addition to zebra should be available through pig trunk. The codebase is not big enough to justify creating a branch. If the reason is Pig's dependence on a checked in hadoop jar, the shims proposal by Dmitry should be taken up asap, so that those who want to use zebra can use pig trunk with hadoop 0.20 - milind On 8/17/09 5:14 PM, "Yiping Han" <y...@yahoo-inc.com> wrote: > +1 > > > On 8/18/09 7:11 AM, "Olga Natkovich" <ol...@yahoo-inc.com> wrote: > >> +1 >> >> -----Original Message----- >> From: Raghu Angadi [mailto:rang...@yahoo-inc.com] >> Sent: Monday, August 17, 2009 4:06 PM >> To: email@example.com >> Subject: Proposal to create a branch for contrib project Zebra >> >> >> Thanks to the PIG team, The first version of contrib project Zebra >> (PIG-833) is committed to PIG trunk. >> >> In short, Zebra is a table storage layer built for use in PIG and other >> Hadoop applications. >> >> While we are stabilizing current version V1 in the trunk, we plan to add >> >> more new features to it.
