Subject [jira] Commented: (HIVE-1668) Move HWI out to Github
Date Sat, 25 Sep 2010 02:32:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-1668?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12914741#action_12914741

Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-1668:

{quote}It should also help mature the product for eventual inclusion in trunk.{quote}
Why would we move something from hive out to github, just to move it back to hive?

{quote}Empirically, they don't. The value of the web interface to users is not nearly as high
as the pain it causes the developers for maintenance.{quote}
Who are these developers who maintain it? Has anyone every added a feature beside me? I'm
not complaining.

{quote}The Hive Web Interface is a pretty sweet deal.{quote} 
Sounds like people like it. 

Why are we debating the past state of hwi? It works now. If someone reports a bug I typically
investigate and patch that same day.

I challenge anyone to open a ticket on core user, called "remove name node web interface to
github" and tried to say "XXXX now offers a better name node interface using python." The
ticket would instantly get a "RESOLVED: WILL NOT FIX".  Why is this any different?

> I have seen HWI cause a number of build and test errors, and it's now going to cost us
some extra work for integration with security. We've worked on hundreds of clusters at Cloudera
and I've never seen anyone use HWI. With the Beeswax UI available in Hue, it's unlikely that
anyone would prefer to stick with HWI. I think it's time to move it out to Github.
