Mahadev konar commented on HADOOP-3663:
---------------------------------------

hmm... :)  the code in the mapper just filters any paths that should not be part of the archive.
It just calls a function and there are 3 line changes for that. Neway if its cofusing for
someone there must be somethign wrong with the code :). I dont have the bandwidth to fix this
(as mentioned above) by the code freeze date. Ill leave it as it is. If people think that
this needs to go into 0.19 I think this patch should be good...

> Archives currently stores the full path from the input sources -- since it allows multiple
sources and regular expressions as inputs. So the created archives have the full path of the
input sources. This is un intuitive and a user hassle. We should get rid of it and allow users
to say that the created archive should be relative to some absolute path and throw an excpetion
if the input does not confirm to the relative absolute path.
