Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8924) Hadoop Common creating package-info.java must not depend on sh
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2012 17:41:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8924?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13477200#comment-13477200
] 

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-8924:
----------------------------------------

Hey guys, does it really make sense to trade a dependency on sh for a dependency on python?
Maybe it does, but at least on Unix systems I feel like sh is more likely to be available
than python. (Honest question here - not trying to be a pain.)

At the very least, if we stick with this being in python, we should update BUILDING.txt to
say that we now have a dependency on python (and perhaps some specific version of python?)
in order to build Hadoop.

> Currently, the build process relies on saveVersion.sh to generate package-info.java with
a version annotation.  The sh binary may not be available on all developers' machines (e.g.
Windows without Cygwin). This issue tracks removal of that dependency in Hadoop Common.
