Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9902) Shell script rewrite
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2014 16:35:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9902?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14087874#comment-14087874

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-9902:
------------------------------------------

bq. The way I'm approaching it is this: if this was a from-scratch implementation would it
be reasonable.

I think that's fair as long as (and I know we've talked about it before, but to clarify to
the wider audience) that we also keep in mind that in some ways we're hamstrung by history.
 If only we could _completely_ break compatibility... how different this change would be!
 (#1: HADOOP_OPTS would die in a mysterious fire.) There are lots of things that are 'not
proper' because of that. :(

bq. IOW, reviewing a diff is, in my opinion, futile.

Absolutely correct.  This was never intended to be reviewed as a diff in the traditional sense.
