Subject [jira] Commented: (MAPREDUCE-1548) Hadoop archives should be able to preserve times and other properties from original files
Date Wed, 03 Mar 2010 21:44:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE-1548?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12840892#action_12840892
] 

Tsz Wo (Nicholas), SZE commented on MAPREDUCE-1548:
---------------------------------------------------

There is one more problem on permission:  Suppose the owners of file1 and file2 are foo and
bar, respectively.  foo creates an archive and the owner information are stored in the index
file.  Now, foo un-archive it but foo cannot set ownver of file2 to bar unless foo is not
a superuser.

> Files inside hadoop archives don't keep their original:
> - modification time
> - access time
> - permission
> - owner
> - group
> all such properties are currently taken from the file storing the archive index, and
not the stored files. This doesn't look very correct.
> There should be possible to preserve the original properties of the stored files.
