Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2283) Remove server-extras module
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2014 01:13:06 GMT

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

             Summary: Remove server-extras module
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2283
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2283
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: Keith Turner
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.6.0


The server-extras module was created as part of ACCUMULO-210. It's sole purpose was to place
extra tools and utilities that depended on server-code that wasn't actually needed for any
of the server modules, but might be useful for other purposes (debugging?).

However, I now think that the only code it contains (the metaanalysis package for debugging
walogs) is dead code that isn't used and probably doesn't work. This code can just be deleted,
along with the entire module, as we don't need an extra artifact for this entirely optional
code, and I'd prefer to get rid of it before 1.6.0 is released. This is safe to do, since
nothing in this package was public API.

If we really want something like this, it'd probably be in our interests to treat it like
a contrib, or related project, outside of Accumulo's build tree entirely.
