Subject [jira] [Updated] (HCATALOG-14) Make it possible to build HCatalog using the HCatalog Git mirror
Date Mon, 02 May 2011 18:26:03 GMT


Jakob Homan updated HCATALOG-14:

    Attachment: hcat-git-2.patch

Actually, I was wrong.  Git tracks specific revisions, which is want we want in the long term
but not in the short, since pointing at the 7 branch breaks the compile.  Here's a patch that
does this.  Unfortunately, there's no way to apply it via subversion since git sets a property
on the external folder (the specific revision to point to, currently at 6e7d9afd4b6f2118fb173aa516f9e53ae8f6f2f6,
the 7 branch).

I can't see a way to set this git property via svn.  Anyone know?  In the meantime, it works
for me to apply this against my working branches, which lets me work on hcat from git.  I
can then un-apply this patch before generating the actual patch I'm aiming for.

In the long term, since git doesn't support externals, it's probably best to focus on removing
the hive extern.  I'll ask on Stack Overflow about the svn property, in case I'm missing something.

> There's a Git mirror of the HCatalog SVN repository available here: git://
> However, right now it's not possible to build HCatalog using the Git mirror because of
the svn:external dependency on Hive:
