Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4617) hadoop-default.xml should not be in conf/ directory
Date Tue, 11 Nov 2008 20:45:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12646660#action_12646660
] 

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

> It will be even harder to understand the dependencies between different configuration
files if people don't see hadoop-default.xml and hadoop-site.xml together in the same directory.

The defaults are documented in html that's included with each release:

http://hadoop.apache.org/core/docs/current/hadoop-default.html

Folks can refer to this to find what the default values are, no?

> 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.
