Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-5742) Remove intentionally corrupt 0.13 directory layout creation
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 06:22:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5742?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12708784#action_12708784
] 

dhruba borthakur commented on HADOOP-5742:
------------------------------------------

The disk layout version is different from the release version. 

For code maintainability purposes, we should deprecate log versions that occured 5 release
back seems like a good option. What log version was there for release 0.13?

> 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)
