Thanks. The article says about upgrading and updating CDH for major/minor releases. What I am looking for a specific patch/fix for any issue that is encountered in your cluster for which either support is need from Cloudera or we have a patch available at JIRA/GIT repository. Any further information on the roles and responsibility as an Hadoop administrator for applying such patches either from CLI (using "patch" commands, GIT repo sync etc.)?
