Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6783) Rename core-* configuration files to common-*
Date Fri, 21 May 2010 18:13:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6783?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12870085#action_12870085

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-6783:

While splitting the config may have made things easier for devs (maybe? is there any evidence
that having xxx-xxx.xml did?), it would be MUCH easier from an ops and end user perspective
if this was one big file again. Pushing around 3 files instead of 1 adds extra coordination
and esp confusion for new users.  [I've lost track of how many times users tried to connect
the hdfs client to the nn web ui port.]

If we want to retain the semi-autonomy, we could make stanzas for each project.

> To reflect the name of the project, the {{core-site.xml}} and {{core-default.xml}} configuration
files should be renamed to {{common-}} and the references in documentation (including javadoc)
should be updated. Compatibility should be maintained, with a warning.
