Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-9552:
-------------------------------------

Nice work [~cnauroth], thanks for documenting this.

Should this be {{WRITE (target)}} instead of {{WRITE (source)}}?
{code}
concat                | NO [2]    | WRITE (source) | N/A                 | READ (source),
WRITE (destination) | N/A
{code}

The rest looks good to me.

> The HDFS permissions guide discusses our use of a POSIX-like model with read, write and
execute permissions associated with users, groups and the catch-all other class.  However,
there is no documentation that describes exactly what permission checks are performed by user-facing
HDFS operations.  This is a frequent source of questions, so it would be good to document
this.
