Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-398) How does bigtop deal with flume dependency on CDH?
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2012 16:02:00 GMT


Arun C Murthy commented on BIGTOP-398:

Bruno, many thanks for your clarifications. 


A couple points which would do away the last vestiges of my confusion:

Drawing the distinction between projects packaged & integrated by Apache Bigtop (Hadoop,
HBase, Pig, Hive, Oozie, Flume, etc.) and  ones which are merely transitive dependencies (protocolbuffers,
clover, guava etc.), I'm coming away understanding that:

# Apache Bigtop maybe choose to manipulate the upstream projects dependencies (e.g. with flume-0.9.3)
*iff* necessary. As you say, you don't patch the upstream project tarball, but you may take
the source and possibly manipulate the build and/or runtime dependencies as was done with
flume-0.9.3 for bigtop-0.2.0. Correct?
# Apache Bigtop may choose to include ASF-compliant projects. What does that mean? Are you
merely talking about the ASL? Or, do you refer to actual projects developed under the aegis
of the ASF? If it's the former, including flume-0.9.3 (again,  under the distinction I drew)
in bigtop-0.2.0 was maybe just a one-off?

Thanks again for helping me understand Apache Bigtop, appreciate it.

How does Bigtop deal with this?
