Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-14066:
-----------------------------------------

I'm happy with this, though I do know that Hive does overreact to version 3 JARs; we've had
to add the ability to lie about versions to shut it up {{-Ddeclared.hadoop.version=2.11}}

> org.apache.hadoop.util.VersionInfo is commonly used by applications that work with multiple
versions of Hadoop.
> In case of Hive, this is used in a shims layer to identify the version of hadoop and
use different shim code based on version (and the corresponding api it supports).
> I checked Pig and Hbase as well and they also use this class to get version information.
> However, this method is annotated as "@private" and "@unstable".
> This code has actually been stable for long time and is widely used like a public api.
I think we should mark it as such.
> Note that there are apis to find the version of server components in hadoop, however,
this class necessary for finding the version of client.
