Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-8607) Replace references to "Dr Who" in codebase with @BigDataBorat
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2012 23:18:35 GMT
Steve Loughran created HADOOP-8607:

             Summary: Replace references to "Dr Who" in codebase with @BigDataBorat
                 Key: HADOOP-8607
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8607
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: util
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-alpha, 1.0.3
            Reporter: Steve Loughran
            Priority: Minor

People complain that having "Dr Who" in the code causes confusion and isn't appropriate in
Hadoop now that it has matured.

I propose that we replace this anonymous user ID with {{@BigDataBorat}}. This will
# Increase brand awareness of @BigDataBorat and their central role in the Big Data ecosystem.
# Drive traffic to twitter, and increase their revenue. As contributors to the Hadoop platform,
this will fund further Hadoop development.

Patching the code is straightforward; no easy tests, though we could monitor twitter followers
to determine rollout of the patch in the field.
