Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Remove append?
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 19:48:35 GMT

To clarify a little bit, I think HDFS-3120 is the right thing to do, to
disable appends, while still enabling hsync in branch-1.

But, going forward, (say 0.23+) having appends working correctly will
definitely add value, and make HDFS more palatable for lots of other

Of course, I have a vested interest in this, because our team is working
on a project that requires append and truncate, and we will be testing it
thoroughly at scale in Q2 this year. Would it be okay to wait for the
results of this testing ?
