This does not appear to include the 0.20-append work?  So it's not
advisable to use HBase with this revision, correct?

The patch selection process for this branch did not appear to be a
community process.  A massive patch set was committed en-masse with no
public discussion before or after about its specific composition.

Long-term the users of a project benefit from a community that
collaborates using open, interactive processes.  If a particular set of
patches, not created through such a process, is valuable to end users,
then it can be distributed on github or elsewhere under a different
name, but should not be granted the imprimatur of a community product.
