Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-5983) Namenode shouldn't read mapred-site.xml
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 14:34:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5983?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13102686#comment-13102686

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-5983:
-------------------------------------

Unfortunately, no, I'm swamped with other 205 work.  Feel free to take it!  Perhaps you already
debugged the issue and know this:
# the mapred-site.xml should not be read in the first place
# the reporter's mapred-site.xml includes local-mapred-site.xml, but the latter file does
not exist
# I think the "solutions" are one of:
#- code change: Namenode doesn't include mapred-site.xml, but I very vaguely remember there
was problem that made it a non-trivial change
#- user change: Don't have mapred-site.xml include a non-existent local-mapred-site.xml
#- user change: Create local-mapred-site.xml as a blank file

205 has a lot of change as it is, so I'd be hesitant to add another potentially incompatible
change when the issue is arguably "user error".  Someone, somewhere, might incorrectly be
relying on settings being read from mapred-site.xml that shouldn't be in that file.  I wouldn't
make that case for anything but the 20.x line, but I'm by no means going to block the real
fix if it's deemed necessary.
