Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4114) Remove the CheckpointNode
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2012 19:41:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4114?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13489696#comment-13489696

Kihwal Lee commented on HDFS-4114:

If a piece of code is not actively maintained and is redundant to or superseded by a better
maintained one, I think deprecating and eventually removing it is definitely an option. I
believe this is what some people feel about BackupNode. If someone starts contributing changes
that are beneficial and meaningful to the community, the situation can change. But it hasn't
happened for quite some time.

bq. I accept your criticism that BackupNode code path was getting less attention from me personally
and the community at large. Will have to work on that on my side.

I hope you do and great features and improvements to come out in the future. Then we will
be able to reset "its-getting-old-lets-get-rid-of-it" timer on BackupNode. How about start
deprecating it in 2.0? If any new development based on BackupNode results in unique features
before next major release, we will un-deprecate it.
