Subject RE: Hadoop 0.15.0 - Reporter issue w/ timing out
Date Sun, 11 Nov 2007 00:53:46 GMT
Did anyone consider the impact of making such a change on existing
applications? Curious how it didn't fail any regression test? (the
pattern that is reported to be broken is so common).

(I suffer from upgradephobia and this doesn't help)

Should we consider this a bug?  Incrementing a counter is a sign of 
activity that should perhaps count towards keeping a task alive.
