Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8801) ExitUtil#terminate should capture the exception stack trace
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 14:30:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8801?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13455822#comment-13455822

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-8801:

@Eli, this patch went in within 2 hours of being submitted. This effectively prevented any
review from anyone not in PST timezone keeping up to date with their JIRA issues.

While I celebrate a rapid integration of patches into the tree, I believe this devalues the
RTC process, as people like myself can't review, even though -as I did belatedly comment-
the patch should use {{toString()}} over {{getMessage()}}, because {{getMessage()}} has the
right to return null.

# I think this a bad precedent. It means there's nothing to stop me getting together with
someone else in the EU and pushing through a set of changes before anyone notices. 
# As I said, the patch is inadequate. 

I don't want to revert the patch -it's in- but I'd like my feedback to be incorporated into
a new JIRA, as {{s/getMessage()/r/toString()}} enhances the value of the output even more.

Do you want to do this? Or shall I? And in either case, can we have slightly more than 2h
for review?
