Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-527) Integrate Hue 2.0.0 into Bigtop
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 21:49:38 GMT


bc Wong commented on BIGTOP-527:

Moving to /usr/lib sounds reasonable.

@Bruno, a sane admin would typically want to install a monolithic Hue due to ease of management.
Note that Hue has its own mechanism to disable (or enable) certain apps.

bq. it would also force the user to know the name of that dependency
Not if you have packaging. And if it's a non-packaging install, the admin will have to know
the dependency chain anyways. Hue itself will still run and function even if the dependencies
aren't there. For example, if you don't have Hive, Beeswax will show you an error. At this
point, you can go install Hive if you care about Beeswax. Or you can disable Beeswax if you
don't care.

bq. People may not want to pull all of Hue
99% of the time, people want to. (I personally haven't heard of any installation that pick-and-chooses
which app to install.) We're trading off 4MB of disk space with major usability and maintenance
improvement. I think it's well worth it.
