Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7310) Trash location needs to be revisited

Harsh J commented on HADOOP-7310:
---------------------------------

I'd like Solution B.

bq. Do folks see *real* compatibility problem here?

Not sure what a *real* compatibility means. But if you mean code/API wise, I don't see anything
abnormal in doing this, nope.

Though, the point I think we're missing is that its not always the admin who uses trash. It
is certainly the admin who uses quotas, but trash is hardly ever queried by the admin.

The problem is breakage of user-training. All users do fs-command X to check trash today.
Tomorrow they'll have to do fs-command Y, and thats not easy to ask them to do. If their admin
wants to change it for good, he may instruct the users after having made the change; but its
no good to break it by default.

Hence, I'd vote for solution B, with same-old format, and with a proper doc added along.
