Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15881) Allow BZIP2 compression
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2016 21:58:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15881?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15314910#comment-15314910

Nick Dimiduk commented on HBASE-15881:

bq. 4. User finds super-critical bug, needs to revert to 1.1.x

Per the emphasis i added to the above quote, we won't support step (4) in our release guidelines

bq. I will say that there is some onus on our users who might simply want BZIP2 compression
and now need to assume the "risk" of a minor upgrade.

Or to control their own exposure by building from v1.1.x + this patch. It's a very simple
patch and is highly likely to apply cleanly for the remaining lifetime of the 1.1.x line.

I'm sorry, there's no compromise that makes everyone happy here. We're either semver or we
aren't. We either adhere to our own guidelines or we don't.

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