Suresh Srinivas commented on HADOOP-9984:
-----------------------------------------

+1 on moving this to 2.3. [~cmccabe], can you comment? If I do not hear in a day or so, I
will make this a blocker bug for 2.3.

> During the process of adding symlink support to FileSystem, we realized that many existing
HDFS clients would be broken by listStatus and globStatus returning symlinks.  One example
is applications that assume that !FileStatus#isFile implies that the inode is a directory.
 As we discussed in HADOOP-9972 and HADOOP-9912, we should default these APIs to returning
resolved paths.
