Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7624) Set things up for a top level hadoop-tools module
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 17:59:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7624?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13103834#comment-13103834

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-7624:

I see a handful of choices:

a) rename contrib to tools and quit lying to ourselves that putting random stuff in a different
directory makes them special

b) integrate these components directly into the mapreduce jar

c) make a new Hadoop sub project to hold these random things

d) just keep these components in contrib

e) make tools separate from contrib, but actually put some rules and process around what goes
in there so that we don't end up with the same mess we had before

I basically don't want to see a repeat of history. If we don't do this now, in a year or three
we're going to be back to "we need to prune contrib^H^H^H^H^H^H^Htools of all this abandoned

If these things are important, just integrate them directly into the mainline jars and be
done with it.

> We need to get things up and running for a top level hadoop-tools module. DistCpV2 will
be the first resident of this new home. Things we need:
