Folks, Majority of the work on Pig on Spark is done and code is up for review to merge into trunk. So we need to branch for Pig 0.16 shortly so that release for rest of the fixes and enhancements that have gone in so far can be released while trunk is used for further stabilization of Pig on Spark code.
Tentatively planning to create the branch early next week. I will be scrubbing through the Pig Patch Available list and jiras marked for Pig 0.16 this week. Please update or mark any jiras that you want addressed in Pig 0.16 if they are not already fixed so that someone can pick that up for fixing.
