Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9902) Shell script rewrite
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 01:09:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9902?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14085610#comment-14085610

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-9902:
----------------------------------------

[~andrew.purtell@gmail.com] - I think you're overreacting and overgeneralizing. If you care
to look you will find many reviews/commits of many contributions with contributors and reviewers
from different organizations. The JIRA has been open for a long time, yes, but I think Allen
will admit that he has not been pushing on it hard until rather recently. The second rev of
the patch was only posted at the beginning of last month.

Regardless, I think there are two big reasons this JIRA has yet to be reviewed:
# It is a very large and important change, hence will require quite some time to thoroughly
review, and it really does deserve a thorough review since it's such a critical part of the
code.
# Many or most of the Hadoop committers are less familiar with shell scripting than they are
with other types of programming, and so don't feel well qualified to do so. I know I personally
don't.

Regardless, turning this JIRA into a flame war is not an appropriate way to go about getting
it committed. I'd personally love to see this get committed, but like Andrew I don't want
to see it (or anything) committed without a review.
