Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-16183) Use latest Yetus to support ozone specific build process
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2019 10:28:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-16183?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16807634#comment-16807634

Elek, Marton commented on HADOOP-16183:

Thanks [~busbey] the response.

I have slightly different understanding about this policy:

Projects SHALL publish official releases and SHALL NOT publish unreleased materials outside
the development community.

During the process of developing software and preparing a release, various packages are made
available to the development community for testing purposes. Projects MUST direct outsiders
towards official releases rather than raw source repositories, nightly builds, snapshots,
release candidates, or any other similar packages. The only people who are supposed to know
about such developer resources are individuals actively participating in development or following
the dev list and thus aware of the conditions placed on unreleased materials.

(source: https://apache.org/legal/release-policy.html)

As far I understand it's not forbidden to use any snapshot version but it shouldn't be publish
for wider audience.

In fact Hadoop used unreleased (or even forked) yetus multiple times. (You can check the config
history: https://builds.apache.org/job/hadoop-qbt-trunk-java8-linux-x86/jobConfigHistory/showDiffFiles?timestamp1=2018-07-10_14-47-51&timestamp2=2018-09-01_21-39-22)

 But I respect your opinion, I will ask for a release on the yetus-dev list.

BTW. Wouldn't be better to store the hadoop personality in the hadoop repository? According
to your comment we need a release from an other project (yetus) to change anything in the
build definition/personality. (cc [~aw])

>            Priority: Major
> In YETUS-816 the hadoop personality is improved to better support ozone specific changes.
> Unfortunately the hadoop personality is part of the Yetus project and not the Hadoop
project: we need a new yetus release or switch to an unreleased version.
> In this patch I propose to use the latest commit from yetus (but use that fixed commit
instead updating all the time).
