Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8152) Expand public APIs for security library classes
Date Sat, 31 Mar 2012 00:33:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13242892#comment-13242892
] 

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-8152:
----------------------------------------

bq. Do you think the entire class apis should be exposed, or just certain methods? Opening
up the methods will essentially set them in stone so we should carefully consider if the apis
are exactly how we want them.

That seems reasonable to me. Is it acceptable to just leave the class InterfaceAudience annotations
in place, and add more visible annotations to certain methods? Or is it that the least-visible
annotation is the one that applies? Or would folks prefer that we create a new class or two
which just selectively expose these interfaces?

Both of these classes are marked LimitedPrivate(HDFS,MR) but should probably be marked more
generally public.
