> Permission configuration files should use octal and symbolic
> ------------------------------------------------------------

>                 Key: HDFS-126
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-126
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Allen Wittenauer

> Currently, the settings for the default umask in Hadoop configuration files require the
input format be in decimal.  Considering that every admin in the world thinks of permissions
in octal and/or symbolic format, the config files should really use those two formats and
drop decimal.
> [... and, yes, I'm aware this breaks backwards compatibility.  But in this case, I think
that is perfectly acceptable.]
