Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6677) InterfaceAudience.LimitedPrivate should take a string not an enum
Date Mon, 05 Apr 2010 18:40:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6677?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12853484#action_12853484
] 

Alan Gates commented on HADOOP-6677:
------------------------------------

The thing I like about having a component name associated with the limited private interface
is it tells developers who depends on that interface.  So if they want to change it they know
who to talk to.  But I don't see it as critical.  If others feel it's better removed, I'm
ok with that.

> Trying to keep the list of all possible components sharing limited private interfaces
up to date is painful.  As other subprojects beyond HDFS and MR use this interface it will
only get worse (see PIG-1311).  If it is converted to a string other subprojects can use it
without requiring patches to common.
