Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-18817) Ensure nothing is written outside R's tempdir() by default
Date Fri, 16 Dec 2016 00:32:58 GMT


Shivaram Venkataraman commented on SPARK-18817:

In that case an easier fix might be to just disable Hive support by default ? cc [~felixcheung]

> - Packages should not write in the users’ home filespace, nor anywhere else on the
file system apart from the R session’s temporary directory (or during installation in the
location pointed to by TMPDIR: and such usage should be cleaned up). Installing into the system’s
R installation (e.g., scripts to its bin directory) is not allowed.
> Limited exceptions may be allowed in interactive sessions if the package obtains confirmation
from the user.
> - Packages should not modify the global environment (user’s workspace).

> Currently "spark-warehouse" gets created in the working directory when sparkR.session()
is called.
