Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-7860) tar file contains duplicate config files in etc/ and conf/
Date Thu, 24 Nov 2011 13:48:39 GMT
tar file contains duplicate config files in etc/ and conf/

                 Key: HADOOP-7860
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7860
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: build
    Affects Versions:
         Environment: Debian 6.0 x64_64
java version "1.6.0_26"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)
            Reporter: stephen mulcahy
            Priority: Minor

When I extract the hadoop tar file download for I notice that it contains a set
of configuration files in conf/ and what seem to be a duplicate set in etc/hadoop.
There is no indication in the docs of why there are two copies of these files. In practice,
the contents of conf/ seem to be used, not etc/hadoop.

I would suggest removing one of these or else clarifying their purpose.
