Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6943) The GroupMappingServiceProvider interface should be public
Date Mon, 13 Sep 2010 18:30:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6943?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12908901#action_12908901

Tom White commented on HADOOP-6943:
-----------------------------------

For developers to use this it should be marked as @Public. @Private means it can only be used
within Hadoop. @Evolving sounds right for this interface.

> The GroupMappingServiceProvider interface is presently package-protected. It seems likely
that many organizations will be implementing their own versions of this to suit their particular
setup. It would be nice if this interface were made public, and annotated with "@InterfaceAudience.Private"
and "@InterfaceStability.Evolving".
