Subject RE: [DISCUSS] remove packaging
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 17:52:50 GMT

By packaging I assume that you mean the RPM/Deb packages and not the tar.gz.  If that is the
case I have no problem with them being removed because as you said in the JIRA BigTop is already
providing a working alternative.  If someone else wants to step up to maintain them I also
don't have a problem with them staying, so long as they become a part of HADOOP-8914 (Automating
the release build).

Subject: [DISCUSS] remove packaging

Hey guys,

Heads up: I filed HADOOP-8925 to remove the packaging from trunk and
branch-2.  The packages are not currently being built, were never
updated for MR2/YARN, I'm not aware of anyone planning to do this work
or maintain them, etc. No sense in letting them continue to bit rot in
the code base.
