Subject 0.16.1 breaks backwards API compatibility with fix for HADOOP-2808.
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 05:21:09 GMT

Hi,

HADOOP-2808 introduced a new signature for the copy method that takes an 
overwrite flag. 

Before this patch the behavior, for the pre-existing copy method, was 
that if the destination existed an IOException was thrown. After this 
patch the behavior, for the pre-existing copy method, is that if the 
destination exists it is overwritten.

The behavior of the pre-existing copy method should not have changed.

Regards,
Subru
