-----------------------------------

Chris,

Thanks for pointing that out. I can set the execute bit when the scripts are committed. Apart
from that, do the changes look OK?

> Currently hadoop-site.xml for EC2 instances is stored as a part of the image and only
a few properties can be controlled from the user scripts (compression, number of map/reduce
tasks). Furthermore, it is not possible to rsync the configuration around the EC2 cluster
with the current image, so the only way to customize the hadoop-site.xml file is to rebuild
the image, which is time-consuming.
> It would be much better to pass the initialization script for nodes at boot time, so
that it is easy to edit the configuration before starting a cluster.
