Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-60) Specification of alternate conf. directory
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2006 00:57:40 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-60?page=comments#action_12368411 ] 

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-60:
-------------------------------------

Looking at your patch, I would change the setting line from:
HADOOP_CONF_DIR=${HADOOP_CONF_DIR:=$HADOOP_HOME/conf}
to:
HADOOP_CONF_DIR=${HADOOP_CONF_DIR:-$HADOOP_HOME/conf}
because you don't need the redundant assignment.

You also need to surround all of the file/directory names with quotes so that you support
spaces in directory names.

> Currently, hadoop configuration must be done by making edits and addition to ${HADOOP_HOME}/conf.
 Allowing specification of an alternate configuration directory will allow keeping configuration
and binary distinct.  Benefits include: Binary can be made read-only; or binary is blanket-updateable
with configuration undisturbed.
