Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6659) Switch RPC to use Avro
Date Fri, 23 Apr 2010 15:24:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6659?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12860274#action_12860274

Arun C Murthy commented on HADOOP-6659:
---------------------------------------

Doug, the concern I have is that doing an incremental approach i.e. protocol-by-protocol,
exposes us to the risk that a late-breaking bug will leave the projects (HDFS/Map-Reduce)
in a state where we can't move forward or back since we have too many changes. I'm sure you
see this.

Having said that I do understand it's harder to this in a branch. However, you will find a
lot of support to ease the pain - I would be willing to volunteer to help on the Map-Reduce
IDL work in the branch, I'm sure we will find others willing to pitch in for HDFS etc. That
way we could get the system working end-to-end with Avro, test at scale and merge switch swiftly.
Does that sounds reasonable?
