Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-3847) Permission configuration files should use octal and symbolic
Date Mon, 28 Jul 2008 21:06:31 GMT
Permission configuration files should use octal and symbolic
------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-3847
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3847
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: dfs
            Reporter: Allen Wittenauer


Currently, the settings for the default umask in Hadoop configuration files require the input
format be in decimal.  Considering that every admin in the world thinks of permissions in
octal and/or symbolic format, the config files should really use those two formats and drop
decimal.

[... and, yes, I'm aware this breaks backwards compatibility.  But in this case, I think that
is perfectly acceptable.]
