In the past the Apache Spark community have created preview packages (not official releases) and used those as opportunities to ask community members to test the upcoming versions of Apache Spark. Several people in the Apache community have suggested we conduct votes for these preview packages and turn them into formal releases by the Apache foundation's standard. Preview releases are not meant to be functional, i.e. they can and highly likely will contain critical bugs or documentation errors, but we will be able to post them to the project's website to get wider feedback. They should satisfy the legal requirements of Apache's release policy (http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html) such as having proper licenses.
Please vote on releasing the following candidate as Apache Spark version 2.0.0-preview. The vote is open until Friday, May 20, 2015 at 11:00 PM PDT and passes if a majority of at least 3 +1 PMC votes are cast.
[ ] +1 Release this package as Apache Spark 2.0.0-preview
