Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6421) Symbolic links
Date Fri, 11 Dec 2009 17:51:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6421?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12789420#action_12789420

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-6421:

It isn't an optimization as much as making sure more people can compile the system.

At this point, most platforms that we care about, it is easy to install autoconf and automake.
If someone wants to open a jira that deletes the files (and moves them into build!) that would
be great. It would make the auto line counting tools stop thinking that Hadoop is a project
dominated by shell scripts. *smile*

Unlike the days of old, I would not even include the autoconf/automake generated stuff in
the source tarball.
