Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4617) hadoop-default.xml should not be in conf/ directory
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2008 17:19:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12646958#action_12646958

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-4617:
--------------------------------------

> Do I understand correctly that hadoop-default will be in HADOOP_HOME/build/classes and
hadoop-site will be still in HADOOP_HOME/conf?

Yes, that is the proposal.  Defaults are for documentation only.  Putting them in the user's
conf directory causes folks to use the wrong version of the defaults, since conf directories
are copied between releases.  The defaults should be more strongly tied to each release.

> It is error prone to keep hadoop-default.xml in the conf/ directory.  Folks copy configuration
directories between releases, but this file is strongly tied to a particualr release and should
not be either editted or used with other than the release it comes with.
