Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8152) Expand public APIs for security library classes
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 20:23:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13250144#comment-13250144

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-8152:

bq. Even marking something as Public+Evolving has certain implications. I don't know if I'm
comfortable with some of these being marked public. Will the impacted parties understand when
we break them?

I'd like to think that the impacted parties would understand. Perhaps one of the HBase folk
watching this JIRA could comment? Andrew? Todd?

bq. (It is inevitable we're going to change reloginFromKeytab and likely even remove it as
part of reworking UGI.)

Is it also inevitable that maintaining backward compatibility will be impossible? If it is,
then we can still break them. Hence the "Evolving" annotation.

Also, could you point me toward the JIRA discussing reworking UGI? I'm not familiar with it.

Both of these classes are marked LimitedPrivate(HDFS,MR) but should probably be marked more
generally public.
