Subject Hadoop slaves file - comment regarding format
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2009 20:46:39 GMT
The file $HADOOP_HOME/conf/slaves has the list of machines that could 
act as slaves. When we open the file it is not immediately obvious if it 
would be a comma separated list of machines to act as slaves or in 
separate lines ( the docs 
http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/r0.19.2/cluster_setup.html#Slaves , 
refer to the machines as in separate lines ).

Would it be possible to have a line beginning with #- explaining it 
briefly the format expected .  Are the lines that begin with   # in 
slaves file ignored ?
