Date Thu, 19 Jul 2012 17:26:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8607?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13418469#comment-13418469

Andrew Purtell commented on HADOOP-8607:

We'd like to backport this to all known Hadoop versions in production, which is back to 0.15.
Shall we attach as separate patches?

>                 Key: HADOOP-8607
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8607
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: util
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.3, 2.0.0-alpha
>            Reporter: Steve Loughran
>            Assignee: Sanjay Radia
>            Priority: Minor
>   Original Estimate: 0.5h
>  Remaining Estimate: 0.5h
> People complain that having "Dr Who" in the code causes confusion and isn't appropriate
in Hadoop now that it has matured.
> I propose that we replace this anonymous user ID with {{@BigDataBorat}}. This will
> # Increase brand awareness of @BigDataBorat and their central role in the Big Data ecosystem.
> # Drive traffic to twitter, and increase their revenue. As contributors to the Hadoop
platform, this will fund further Hadoop development.
> Patching the code is straightforward; no easy tests, though we could monitor twitter
followers to determine rollout of the patch in the field.
