Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-778) Path.toString() should retain trailing '/' if passed in constructor
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2006 22:21:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-778?page=comments#action_12455432 ] 
Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-778:

I think this is a bad direction. Users get very confused about this kind of semantics since
it is very non-standard on unix. I've had to explain the rsync rules to a LOT of people. *sigh*

it back in toString() ? 
> Looking at Path.toString() JobClient wont have a way of knowing which Paths were intended
to be directories and not files, in the context of globbed regex ( HADOOP-619 ).
