Hi Ali,

>From what I know, there are quite a few applications that need
append-to-exisiting-file feature. Since there is a demand for it, HDFS will
probably implement it in the near future. I do not know of precise
time-frames yet.

Do you have an application that requires appending-writes to files. If so,
it will be helpful to understand the type and behaviour of this application.

 While I was reading the HDFS docs from the wiki, I bump into this

 "There is a plan to support appending-writes to a file in future"

 I would like to know, if possible, what is the time line for implementing
 this future.
