3.0 will be our first Apache release. As such the Java package structure
has changed (com.yahoo -> org.apache) which will require some work to
migrate user code from pre-3.0 to 3.0. There are a few additional
"incompatible" changes that have been lumped into 3.0, we wanted to pull
any such changes into this release so that going fwd we could more
easily maintain b/w compatibility in the apis/data (ie break things
once, which had to be done anyway for package struct). You can see these
changes by checking the appropriate checkbox in the "findissues" section
of the JIRA.
The release notes for 3.0 will contain a section detailing the
migrations necessary when migrating from 2.2.1 to 3.0
If you have any questions please respond. Regards,

That's the day you'll branch, right? So no new features would be added
to the branch, but bugs will be fixed there. Folks will start building
release candidates then and calling votes on them. When these get 3 +1
votes and no -1 votes from PMC members then they can be released.
If that's the process you'll follow, the actual release will be at least
a few days later, since you need to wait 72 hours for any -1 votes.
