Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9912) globStatus of a symlink to a directory does not report symlink as a directory
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 04:24:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9912?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13757455#comment-13757455

Binglin Chang commented on HADOOP-9912:
---------------------------------------

I grep all the usage in hadoop code base, here are some listStatus usage we need to consider:
listStatus is used in 
  FileSystem.getContentSummary use listStatus to traverse dir, I think it should not follow
symlink
  Distcp use listStatus to traverse src dir, should not follow too..
  FileUtil.copy copy directory recursively, not sure
When consider semantics and compatibility, these should also be considered.
