Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6311) Add support for unix domain sockets to JNI libs
Date Tue, 13 Oct 2009 16:09:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6311?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12765128#action_12765128

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-6311:


Forking part of Android into Hadoop, while legal, is a really bad idea. *We* will become responsible
for maintaining the code and will need to track all of the bug fixes that go into it. This
is a huge maintenance burden.

This might be acceptable if you can get the Android project to make releases that we can use.
(Or if they split it out into a stand alone project that they also use...)

For some related history, look at the pain that happened when we used a snapshot build from
Apache Commons CLI. We eventually had to roll back to the released version including downgrading
all of our usage of the new features.

common which adds a o.a.h.net.unix package based on the code from Android (apache 2 license)
