Subject [jira] [Resolved] (HDFS-1113) Allow users with write access to a directory to change ownership of its subdirectories/files

Allen Wittenauer resolved HDFS-1113.
------------------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

There are multiple ways to close this one. Pick your preferred option:

a) Consensus is unlikely to get reached.

b) ACLs and/or extended attributes provide a fix for this issue.

In either case, I'm closing it.

> owner and group of a file/directory, and namespace/diskspace quota for a directory are
mutable attributes. If I have writable access to a directory, say /team/MyTeam, and if there
are subdirectories underneath, such as /team/MyTeam/TeamMember1, /team/MyTeam/TeamMember2,
then I should be able to chown, chgrp, setQuota, clrQuota on TeamMemeber{1|2} subdirectories.
Currently in HDFS (and in Posix), it requires me to be a superuser to perform these operations.
