Subject Commit Log Hacks ( https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6628 )
Date Thu, 11 Mar 2010 18:46:20 GMT

Seeing as how our two non-mainline distributions don't have real release
notes published, I've built two quick and dirty perl scripts (yes perl! Fear
the ops people!) to take the commit log from CDH and the Yahoo! changes
files to spit out Confluence-style wiki output.  Changing it to other wiki
output shouldn't be too difficult.

99% of the time, it gets it correct, but sometimes weirdness happens and it
will take some manual cleaning to get it perfect.

Anyway, I thought these might be handy for other folks to help compare and
contrast the differences between the two.  Now it is pretty easy to see how
divergent a given distribution is from mainline, how hard it will be for
them to rebase onto mainline, etc.  Another interesting data point is
comparing the official bug description and the description in the commit

Have fun.
