---------------------------------------

             Summary: FileSystem.rename(final Path src, final Path dst, final Rename... options)
to become public; specified, tested
                 Key: HADOOP-13856
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13856
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: fs/s3
    Affects Versions: 2.8.0
            Reporter: Steve Loughran


A lot of code within Hadoop (e.g. committers, filesystem) and downstream (Hive, spark), don't
know what to do when rename() returns false, as it can be a sign of nothing important, or
something major.

In contrast, {{rename(final Path src, final Path dst, final Rename... options)}} has stricter
semantics and throws up all exceptions to be caught or relayed by callers. Yet it cannot be
used as its scoped at {{protected}} and tagged as {{@Deprected}}. 

If it was made public then it could be used in committers and elsewhere; if we backport the
making of it public, then life will be even better
