Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-527) Integrate Hue 2.0.0 into Bigtop
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 19:38:23 GMT


Bruno Mahé commented on BIGTOP-527:

It depends on:
* The dependencies. If one app depends on Apache Hive, another one on Apache Flume and another
one on some other Apache project, then installing Hue means pulling all these dependencies.
Making these transitive dependencies optional or not required would be quite inconvenient
for users since it would not only require another step to install that dependency, but it
would also force the user to know the name of that dependency (ie. which package do I need?)

* The usage pattern of Hue. People may not want to pull all of Hue, the same way they may
not want to pull the entire LibreOffice on their machine with all its modules and language
support. Although LibreOffice is kind of on the other end of the spectrum with ~100 packages
on my Fedora 16

So for now, given the size of the patch and the effort required for such modification, what
about focusing on integrating Hue as is and then figuring out how to proceed with the apps
later? I can open a ticket if needed.
