+1. Better to iron out issues earlier than later.

> enable hdfs permission checking by default
> ------------------------------------------
>                 Key: HADOOP-2552
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2552
>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: dfs
>            Reporter: Doug Cutting
>             Fix For: 0.16.0
> We should enable permission checking in dfs by default.  Currently, on upgrade, all file
permissions are 777, so this is a back-compatible change.  After an upgrade folks can change
owners and groups and limit permissions, and things will work as expected.
> The current default, dfs.permissions=false, gives inconsistent behaviour: permissions
are displayed in 'ls' and returned by the FileSystem APIs, but they're not enforced.  In future
releases we will certainly want dfs.permissions=true to be the default, and making it so now
will thus also avoid an incompatible change.
> dfs.permissions=false should be an optional, non-default configuration that some sites
may decide to use.  It is further defined in HADOOP-2543.
