Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15881) Allow BZIP2 compression
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2016 18:35:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15881?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15314563#comment-15314563

Mikhail Antonov commented on HBASE-15881:
-----------------------------------------

I'd look at the balance between giving users a one more (may be small) useful thing vs. risk
of destabilizing release branch. If the patch gives some value and is very small, self-contained
and not risky, I personally would not hesitate to commit it to release branch even if doesn't
formally comply with the definition of bug fix. Me might have a wording in the guideline saying
that backporting of small backword-compatibly patches is at the discretion of RM?

> BZIP2 is a very efficient compressor in terms of compression rate.
> Compression speed is very slow, de-compression is equivalent or faster than GZIP.
