Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-5673) Implement logic for modification of ACLs.
Date Mon, 23 Dec 2013 21:13:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5673?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13855934#comment-13855934

Haohui Mai commented on HDFS-5673:

Thanks Chris.

On a high level, I would like to see the code to separate (1) the required functionality and
(2) optimization. Correct me if I'm wrong. For example, It seems to me that the merge function
can look like the following:

merge(a,b) {
  // required functionality
  list c = merge list a and b.
  // optimization

optimize(d) {
  list d;
  foreach (entry in c) {
    if (the current entry can be merged (e.g., duplication, different mask) with the previous
one) {
       update previous entry in d;
    } else {
       add the entry into d;

The advantage of this approach is to make reasoning much easier. The required functionality
is relatively straight forward. To reason about  optimization, one only needs to check that
it provides semantically equivalent results. Furthermore, optimization can break down into
several  passes to improve readability.

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: namenode
>    Affects Versions: HDFS ACLs (HDFS-4685)
>            Reporter: Chris Nauroth
>            Assignee: Chris Nauroth
>         Attachments: HDFS-5673.1.patch, HDFS-5673.2.patch, HDFS-5673.3.patch
> This patch will include the core logic for modification of ACLs.  This includes support
for all user-facing APIs that modify ACLs.  This will cover access ACLs, default ACLs, automatic
mask calculations, automatic inference of unprovided default ACL entries, and validation to
prevent creation of an invalid ACL.
