Plan for hbase 0.2.0 version

A meeting to plan hbase development priorities over the next three months, "hbase 0.17", took place January 30th, 2008 at Powerset in San Francisco. Attendees were Chris Kline, Bryan Duxbury, Jim Firby, Michael Bieniosek, Jim Kellerman, Chad Walters, and Michael Stack.

Format was a round of the room giving each of the attendees opportunity to call out the big ticket items that they believed needs addressing over the next phase of development. Thereafter, the meeting degenerated into a huddle around a screen with Bryan, Jim K, and stack entering and jumbling issues to match the agreed upon priorities.

High level, the consensus was that the focus for the next three months should be Robustness and Scalability (In that order).

The priorities identified in this meeting were presented to the HBase community for approval, additions and deletions.

Identified Priorities

Apart from the obvious hadoop issues -- i.e. HADOOP-1700 -- the group identified the below as priorities to be addressed over the course of the next three months or so. All items make contribution to the banner target of increased "Robustness and Scalability". All items have by now corresponding issues over in JIRA.

Target is that the next release can handle "3TB of data on about ~50 nodes".

Refactoring Patterns

There was some talk among J, B, and S about refactoring patterns to keep in mind as we hack into the hbase future:
