Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9261) S3n filesystem can move a directory under itself -and so lose data
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 23:28:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13569241#comment-13569241
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-9261:
----------------------------------------

This turns out to be harder than expected because of the requirement for POSIX return codes.

#rename file->file = true
#rename dir->dir = false
Also, we need to check the destination after the full destination is calculated, not upfront,
so that when the full pathname is calculated as parent+filename, the equality check needs
to be made then. 
# rename (path/file,path) returns true (shortcutting the copy)
# rename (path/dir, path) fails

> The S3N filesystem {{rename()}} doesn't make sure that the destination directory is not
a child or other descendant of the source directory. The files are copied to the new destination,
then the source directory is recursively deleted, so losing data.
