Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1958) Format confirmation prompt should be more lenient of its input
Date Thu, 19 May 2011 18:20:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1958?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13036347#comment-13036347
] 

Todd Lipcon commented on HDFS-1958:
-----------------------------------

bq. particularly when an experienced commmitter is raising questions about it?

Excuse me - I took Nicholas's question for a joke, to be honest, given it referenced high
school students and didn't raise technical objections.

bq. fsck and format are different: it is okay to accidentally click "y" for fsck but not for
format.

OK, another comparison: mke2fs doesn't ask for confirmation at all. I checked this across
ext2, ext3, and ntfs.

> As reported on the mailing list, the namenode format prompt only accepts 'Y'. We should
also accept 'y' and 'yes' (non-case-sensitive).
