Some recent changes by the builds team broke hudson patch builds for hadoop. Unfortunately there is no way for us to trigger this manually. Giri is working with apache infra to resolve the issue, however it's complicated and might take some time. Current ETA is a few days (3-5 sounds like). Giri will update us when it's addressed. We've had a few bugs come in recently, and a fix release in progress -- this has been diverting resources from reviews. Also note that there has been activity on 823 - it's just that each time someone (usually me) looked at the jira an issue was found. Most recently the patch was failing to apply against the latest trunk. Prior to that the tests were failing, etc... This is why I suggested to you initially that the patch be kept simple(ish), and to do further refactorings later. This is a complicated patch to complicated code, it's going to take some time to settle. Note: keeping patches simple and discrete helps to get them reviewed quickly and cleanly. (granted not always possible) At the same time though we should be getting back to these patches more quickly. I've personally spent a ton of time on this issue, initially creating and most recently reviewing some refactorings, I'd really like to see this go in myself! I've asked Ben/Flavio/Mahadev to take a look and help drive this to completion. Thomas, thanks for the help. Hopefully we'll get this one sorted out asap and move on to other issues.
