Date Tue, 16 Apr 2019 18:18:00 GMT

Christopher Tubbs resolved ACCUMULO-1963.
-----------------------------------------
       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.0.0)

I think the ship has sailed on this one. Maybe worth looking at in the future.

> 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).
