Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6283) Write end user documentation for xattrs.
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 16:19:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6283?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13997712#comment-13997712

Andrew Wang commented on HDFS-6283:

Hey Uma,

As this is intended to be user documentation, I think the statement is correct. The point
was to call it out separately from normal inode metadata, which the user can modify and is
interpreted by the system. Since users can't modify anything in system or security, nothing
they modify in the user namespace is interpreted by the system.

 If warranted, consider adding a separate dedicated page for fuller discussion of the xattrs
model and how the feature works in more detail.
