Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8152) Expand public APIs for security library classes
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 13:50:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13257480#comment-13257480

Andrew Purtell commented on HADOOP-8152:
----------------------------------------

I think we would like to work together here. Nobody is doing obviously dumb things and asking
for forgiveness later IMHO. We'd like our projects to integrate with Hadoop when its security
features are enabled. Unfortunately to do so requires use of classes/methods now marked as
private or whatever. This area is obviously still a work in progress and not conducive to
easy reuse or extension. We can be blamed for wanting to do the right thing, but that seems
counterproductive.

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