Sebastien Crocquevieille commented on MAPREDUCE-210:

[~indrajeetapache], [~cutting] quick ping here.

Any chance of waking up this issue from its deep slumber?

If the previous work done on this issue is too dusty, as [~harisekhon] said there is a 3rd
party format here: 
With the associated blog post: [http://cutler.io/2012/07/hadoop-processing-zip-files-in-mapreduce/]

We'd all be terribly grateful :)

> HDFS is inefficient with large numbers of small files.  Thus one might pack many small
files into large, compressed, archives.  But, for efficient map-reduce operation, it is desireable
to be able to split inputs into smaller chunks, with one or more small original file per split.
 The zip format, unlike tar, permits enumeration of files in the archive without scanning
the entire archive.  Thus a zip InputFormat could efficiently permit splitting large archives
into splits that contain one or more archived files.
