Junping Du commented on HDFS-9047:
----------------------------------

bq. IMO +1 on removing them in 2.6 / 2.7 if it's breaking the pre-commit builds, but I'll
leave to the release manager to make the call.
I am +1 on removing them in 2.6 in case not breaking any compatibility.

> This library is basically a mess:
> * It's not part of the mvn package
> * It's missing functionality and barely maintained
> * It's not in the precommit runs so doesn't get exercised regularly
> * It's not part of the unit tests (at least, that I can see)
> * It isn't documented in any official documentation
> But most importantly:  
> * It fails at it's primary mission of being pure C (HDFS-3917 is STILL open)
> Let's cut our losses and just remove it.
