Subject URL convention for commands / config?
Date Mon, 21 Aug 2006 21:20:58 GMT
Hi Folks,

Seems like we are adding more and more options and commands that take  
a file or URL argument, where the file can be one of a number of  
places.  Perhaps we can unify things a bit by agreeing to use URL  
conventions in these places?


file:// is a file on the current machine
http is supported everywhere
hdfs://host[:port]/ is the used to refer to HDFS files
hdfs:/// is used to use the default hdfs?
rsync, ftp and https are supported too (eventually)
torrent:// is used to support bittorent someday...

Should we standardize on such a conventions and start digging to put  
a class together to make this all seamless?
