Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12021) Augmenting Configuration to accomodate <description>
Date Tue, 26 May 2015 20:01:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14559745#comment-14559745

Andrew Wang commented on HADOOP-12021:

Lewis, could you give a little more detail of your Nutch usecase?

It's also worth noting that while we provide the description in core-default.xml / hdfs-default.xml
/ etc for documentation, but probably not in user-provided config files. The -default.xml
files are already included in our JARs, so it shouldn't increase dependency size. Loading
them in will, however, increase in-memory size, which is probably a concern for some user
