André Kelpe commented on HADOOP-9904:

Is the deployment process of the tarballs/rpms etc. documented somewhere? I would love to
submit a patch for the scripts, but I am unable to find them.

> As part of the cascading (http://cascading.org) project, we are maintaining a vagrant
based hadoop setup (https://github.com/Cascading/vagrant-cascading-hadoop-cluster). This setup
downloads the hadoop tarball from a nearby mirror, when the user starts it up. The problem
we are having, is that there is no easy way for a script to determine the file name of the
current stable release tarball to download.
> When 1.2.1 became the new stable release the former stable release 1.1.2 was removed
from the mirrors. This broke our setup, while that is not really necessary, if it would be
discoverable, what the latest tarball is.
> There is a /stable directory, which contains the latest release, however the file names
are changing every time. If there would be link in the directory, that is called hadoop-stable.tar.gz
or a simple text file, that explains, what the latest stable release is, our setup would continue
working, even if a new version or hadoop is released.
