Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-1963) Rename metadata table ID (!0) so it doesn't have an exclamation point

-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Rename metadata table ID (!0) so it doesn't have an exclamation point
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1963
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1963
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.7.0


The table ID for the metadata table is problematic. The reserved character requires special
escaping in shells, like bash.

This was going to happen with ACCUMULO-1712, but would require some effort to upgrade and
test the root table, walogs, and HDFS paths, so this is going to be postponed and not completed
for 1.6.

The proposed new table ID is "+m", following the conventions of the root table, whose ID is
"+r". ("+" can be used much more safely across filesystems and shells).
