Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10430) KeyProvider Metadata should have an optional label, there should be a method to retrieve the metadata from all keys
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2014 14:10:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10430?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13963012#comment-13963012

Larry McCay commented on HADOOP-10430:
--------------------------------------

Hmmm... I don't think that I agree - though I can potentially see this as a separate piece
of metadata to be introduced in a follow up jira. This way it doesn't interfere with the simple
descriptive goal of this label.

I do think that we should prescribe a simple delimiter for it though - maybe just space -
and the values should be arbitrary.
This allows the apps and tools to uniformly understand how to parse them and potentially have
app specific semantics for evaluating them.

What do you think about separate a jira to introduce a tags metadata field?

> Being able to attach an optional label (and show it when displaying metadata) will enable
giving some context on the keys.
