>                 Key: HDFS-8852
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-8852
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: documentation
>            Reporter: Hong Dai Thanh
>            Assignee: Ajith S
>              Labels: newbie
>         Attachments: HDFS-8852.2.patch, HDFS-8852.patch
> In the [latest version of the documentation|http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current2/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-hdfs/HdfsDesign.html#Simple_Coherency_Model],
and also documentation for all releases with version 2, it’s mentioned that “A file once
created, written, and closed need not be changed. “ and “There is a plan to support appending-writes
to files in the future.” 
> However, as far as I know, HDFS has supported append write since 0.21, based on [HDFS-265|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-265]
and [the old version of the documentation in 2012|https://web.archive.org/web/20121221171824/http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/hdfs/current/hdfs_design.html#Appending-Writes+and+File+Syncs]
> Various posts on the Internet also suggests that append write has been available in HDFS,
and will always be available in Hadoop version 2 branch.
> Can we update the documentation to reflect the current status?
> (Please also review whether the documentation should also be updated for version 0.21
and above, and the version 1.x branch)
