Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3427) TestEditLogFileOutputStream#PREALLOCATION_LENGTH is dead code
Date Wed, 16 May 2012 23:01:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3427?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13277235#comment-13277235

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on HDFS-3427:

If our code are so good that this is the only bad programming practice, it may worth to fix
it in order to make our code perfect.  Unfortunately, it is not the case.  We probably have
hundreds (if it is not thousands or more) of problems like this.  Why bother to fix this one?

IMHO, fixing trivial one-line changes in a test for the reason of good programming practice
is a kind of wasting resource.  It wastes contributors' time to check the issue and read the
emails.  It wastes users' time to read and understand the change (if it is committed) in CHANGES.txt
and release notes.  It also wastes our computation resource to record, track the change and
the issue (I wonder if we have to pay $100 for filing an issue from our pocket, would anyone
still file this?)  Something may appear to be free but there is indeed a cost behind.

BTW, I am not saying that not fixing this tiny trivial issue.  As in my previous comment,
we could remove the unused line whenever we change TestEditLogFileOutputStream or other related


@Todd, no, I am not suggesting this could be done without a JIRA.
