Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6253) isLegalTableName API should check for the _acl_ table name
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2012 18:02:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6253?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13398658#comment-13398658
] 

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-6253:
---------------------------------------

How can a user drop the ACL table if they are not authorized to do it?

The string "_acl_" as table name has no meaning unless the AccessController is installed.
So -1 a core change that encodes it.
