Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-5742) Remove intentionally corrupt 0.13 directory layout creation
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2009 19:09:30 GMT
Remove intentionally corrupt 0.13 directory layout creation

                 Key: HADOOP-5742
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5742
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: dfs
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon

Given that 0.13 is incredibly old at this point, I think the likelihood of anyone trying to
start an 0.20+ namenode on an 0.13 directly layout is essentially nil. The intentionally-corrupt
"${dfs.name.dir}/image/" directory just serves to confuse new users at this point, so I propose
removing it.

If no one objects, I'll submit a patch. If there are objections, I propose at least adding
a README explaining its purpose (same text as in the corrupt fsimage file)
