Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-1958) Format confirmation prompt should be more lenient of its input
Date Thu, 19 May 2011 21:18:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1958?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13036477#comment-13036477

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-1958:

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

Not asking for confirmation and case insensitive are also different.

Moreover, since the "-format" command is there for years, I wonder if there are some admins
already taking advantages of the fact that 'y' won't format.  For example, the 'yes' command
outputs lower case y's.

> Yes. But I already addressed it so no need to retroactively tag it as such (IMO the point
of the newbie label is just to help new contributors find open JIRAs that might be easy to
start with).

Okay, I think you like to leave the easy issues for the new contributors.

also accept 'y' and 'yes' (non-case-sensitive).
