Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6994) libhdfs3 - A native C/C++ HDFS client
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2014 20:12:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6994?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14162443#comment-14162443

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-6994:
--------------------------------------------

I would have preferred not to change the branch name.  Now we have to re-establish who is
a branch committer on the renamed branch.  It seems like this will add more delay.  git gives
you the ability to remove whatever commits you like from the history, so wanting a "clean
history" is not really a valid reason.  However, I'm fine with the rename as long as we can
get back to finishing the work.

The big tasks ahead that I see are basically code cleanup, fixing the dependencies to not
include category X licenses, and dealing with C++11 issues.  We may also need to stabilize
things since the library was developed against a different version of Hadoop than trunk.

> Hi All
> I just got the permission to open source libhdfs3, which is a native C/C++ HDFS client
based on Hadoop RPC protocol and HDFS Data Transfer Protocol.
> libhdfs3 provide the libhdfs style C interface and a C++ interface. Support both HADOOP
RPC version 8 and 9. Support Namenode HA and Kerberos authentication.
> libhdfs3 is currently used by HAWQ of Pivotal
> I'd like to integrate libhdfs3 into HDFS source code to benefit others.
> You can find libhdfs3 code from github
> https://github.com/PivotalRD/libhdfs3
