Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8175) Add mkdir -p flag
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 22:00:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13230605#comment-13230605
] 

Robert Joseph Evans commented on HADOOP-8175:
---------------------------------------------

I like the patch.  The tests are part of HDFS-3104, I looked at them too and I think they
look good.  +1.  But I am not an HDFS committer, just MapReduce and common, so it might be
best to get an HDFS committer to put in both.

> Users require the ability to create a directory iff it doesn't exist.  Currently, running
FsShell's mkdir twice will result in an already exists error.  The unix mkdir -p flag won't
fail if the directory already exists.  Per parent jira, pig project would also like this feature.
> (Eventually mkdir should probably also stop creating all intermediate dirs unless -p
is given, but that's an incompatible change)
