Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-2514) Trash and permissions don't mix
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2008 01:39:34 GMT
Trash and permissions don't mix

                 Key: HADOOP-2514
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2514
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: dfs
    Affects Versions: 0.16.0
            Reporter: Robert Chansler

Shell command "rm" is really "mv" to trash with the expectation that the server will at some
point really delete the contents of trash. With the advent of permissions, a user can "mv"
folders that the user cannot "rm". The present trash feature as implemented would allow the
user to suborn the server into deleting a folder in violation of the permissions model.

A related issue is that if anybody can mv a folder to the trash anybody else can mv that same
folder from the trash. This may be contrary to the expectations of the user.

What is a better model for trash?
