Re: [DISCUSS] Towards Avatica 1.13.0

I have assigned my self to CALCITE-2576 (Release Avatica 1.13) and will be release manager for this release, if there are no objections.

If possible, I'd like to have a release for voting available by the end of next week (23/11/2018). Unfortunately, this is during Thanksgiving, but I am hoping that everyone will have the opportunity to test the release and cast a vote by the following week. Assuming rc0 passes, we can then make the release official by the end of that week (1/12/2018). This will then allow us to release Calcite 1.18 sometime in December, before Christmas.

Are there any issues/features you guys would like to see in this release of Avatica? This is now the chance to get them into 1.13.0.

A new release of Avatica would be great. And we would be able to use it in the upcoming Calcite, and upgrade Calcite’s version of Jetty.  (See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CALCITE-2467.)

Hey all,

I want to start up some discussion to release Avatica 1.13.0. It's been roughly 5 months since the last Avatica release and Kevin has made quite a few improvements to the code base. There are currently around 24 new commits since the last release. In addition, Jetty has also been upgraded, which I believe would be beneficial for Calcite.

I have a script to build Avatica releases using docker in a branch and plan to merge it in for this release. I also want to fix CALCITE-2385 (Cannot build if we update the AVATICA_VERSION in the dockerfile during a dry-run release).

In terms of open PRs on Github:

- Kevin, can you see if your open PRs can make it into this release?

- CALCITE-2412 to add appveyor for testing on Windows (https://github.com/apache/calcite-avatica/pull/65) is currently in progress. Is there anything blocking us from merging this? Travis also released testing on Windows a month ago (https://blog.travis-ci.com/2018-10-11-windows-early-release). Perhaps this is also an option we can look at.

- CALCITE-2322 didn't make it into 1.12.0. I'd like to see if we can reengage Kevin Minder to get this in for 1.13.0

- There's also an open PR that does not have a JIRA case: https://github.com/apache/calcite-avatica/pull/76 Let's see if we can shepherd this into the release.

Is there anyone on the list who would like to be release manager? If no one is able to, I am happy to act as release manager for this release.
