Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-240) Should HDFS restrict the names used for files?
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 05:56:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-240?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15950369#comment-15950369

Andrew Wang commented on HDFS-240:

Hi [~jzhuge] do you still plan to work on this for Hadoop 3? Given the impact, we really should
get it in before beta.

>                 Key: HDFS-240
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-240
>             Project: Hadoop HDFS
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.2
>            Reporter: Robert Chansler
>            Assignee: John Zhuge
> When reviewing the consequences of HADOOP-6017 (the name system could not start because
a file name interpreted as a regex caused a fault), the discussion turned to improving the
test set for file system functions by broadening the set of names used for testing. Presently,
HDFS allows any name without a slash. _Should the space of names be restricted?_ If most funny
names are unintended, maybe the user would benefit from an early error indication. A contrary
view is that restricting names is so 20th-century.
> Should be or shouldn't we?
