Subject [VOTE] Merge feature branch HADOOP-12930
Date Mon, 09 May 2016 20:26:22 GMT

	Hey gang!

	I’d like to call a vote to run for 7 days (ending May 16 at 13:30 PT) to merge the HADOOP-12930
feature branch into trunk. This branch was developed exclusively by me as per the discussion
two months ago as a way to make what would be a rather large patch hopefully easier to review.
 The vast majority of the branch is code movement in the same file, additional license headers,
maven assembly hooks for distribution, and variable renames. Not a whole lot of new code,
but a big diff file none-the-less.

	This branch modifies the ‘hadoop’, ‘hdfs’, ‘mapred’, and ‘yarn’ commands
to allow for subcommands to be added or modified at runtime.  This allows for individual users
or entire sites to tweak the execution environment to suit their local needs.  For example,
it has been a practice for some locations to change the distcp jar out for a custom one. 
Using this functionality, it is possible that the ‘hadoop distcp’ command could run the
local version without overwriting the bundled jar and for existing documentation (read: results
from Internet searches) to work as written without modification. This has the potential to
be a huge win, especially for:
		* advanced end users looking to supplement the Apache Hadoop experience
		* operations teams that may be able to leverage existing documentation without having to
remain local “exception” docs
		* development groups wanting an easy way to trial experimental features

	Additionally, this branch includes the following, related changes:

		* Adds the first unit tests for the ‘hadoop’ command
		* Adds the infrastructure for hdfs script testing and the first unit test for the ‘hdfs’
		* Modifies the hadoop-tools components to be dynamic rather than hard coded
		* Renames the shell profiles for hdfs, mapred, and yarn to be consistent with other bundled
profiles, including the ones introduced in this branch

	Documentation, including a ‘hello world’-style example, is in the UnixShellGuide markdown
file.  (Of course!)

	 I am at ApacheCon this week if anyone wants to discuss in-depth.



	There are still two open sub-tasks.  These are blocked by other issues so that we may add
unit testing to the shell code in those respective areas.  I’ll covert to full issues after
HADOOP-12930 is closed.
