Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7521) bintar created tarball should use a common directory for prefix
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2011 20:33:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7521?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13080202#comment-13080202

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-7521:
------------------------------------------

bq. It is standard practice with popular Ops tools. 

Yet your examples are dev tools.  

-1 remains.  Might as well close this as won't fix.

> The binary tarball contains the directory structure like:
> {noformat}
> hadoop-common-0.23.0-SNAPSHOT-bin/bin
>                                  /etc/hadoop
>                                  /libexec
>                                  /sbin
>                                  /share/hadoop/common
> {noformat}
> It would be nice to rename the prefix directory to a common directory where it is common
to all Hadoop stack software.  Therefore, user can untar hbase, hadoop, zookeeper, pig, hive
all into the same location and run from the top level directory without manually renaming
them to the same directory again.
> By default the prefix directory can be /usr.  Hence, it could merge with the base OS.
