Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8152) Expand public APIs for security library classes
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 02:02:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13257160#comment-13257160

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-8152:

We should only mark the methods that are *specifically* called out in the documentation, not
nearly as many as this patch does.  I'm pretty much -1 on any patch that marks undocumented
methods as public.

Additionally, since HBase, Hive, and Oozie are using methods that are private without communicating
their need beforehand, I see no reason to change the InterfaceAudience.  Using the methods,
doing a release, and then asking for forgiveness is inexcusable.  They could have easily have
asked us to change prior to them doing a release.  Since they didn't, they clearly don't care
about the stability levels.

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