Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6628) Make Cloudera commit logs and Yahoo! change logs into web-readable formats
Date Thu, 11 Mar 2010 18:46:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6628?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12844164#action_12844164

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-6628:

Seeing as how our two non-mainline distributions don't have real release notes published,
I've built two quick and dirty perl scripts (yes perl! Fear the ops people!) to take the commit
log from CDH and the Yahoo! changes files to spit out Confluence-style wiki output.  Changing
it to other wiki output shouldn't be too difficult.

99% of the time, it gets it correct, but sometimes weirdness happens and it will take some
manual cleaning to get it perfect.

Anyway, I thought these might be handy for other folks to help compare and contrast the differences
between the two.  Now it is pretty easy to see how divergent a given distribution is from
mainline, how hard it will be for them to rebase onto mainline, etc.  Another interesting
data point is comparing the official bug description and the description in the commit log....

Have fun.
