]

Robert Chansler updated HADOOP-6234:
------------------------------------

    Release Note: New configuration option dfs.umaskmode sets umask with octal or symbolic
value.  (was: Add new option dfs.umaskmode to set umask in configuration to use octal or symbolic
instead of decimal.)

Editorial pass over all release notes prior to publication of 0.21.

> Currently, the settings for the default umask in Hadoop configuration files require the
input format be in decimal.  Considering that every admin in the world thinks of permissions
in octal and/or symbolic format, the config files should really use those two formats and
drop decimal.
> [... and, yes, I'm aware this breaks backwards compatibility.  But in this case, I think
that is perfectly acceptable.]
