Subject Re: Using HDFS as a secondary FS
Date Mon, 14 Dec 2015 08:11:56 GMT
Hi Ivan,

1) Yes, I think that it makes sense to have the old versions of the docs 
while an old version is still considered to be used by someone.

2) Absolutely, the time to add a corresponding article on the readme.io 
has come. It's not the first time I see the question related to HDFS as 
a secondary FS.
Before and now it's not clear for me what exact steps I should follow to 
enable such a configuration. Our current suggestions look like a puzzle.
I'll assemble the puzzle on my side and prepare the article. Ivan if you 
don't mind I would reaching you out directly asking for any technical 
assistance if needed.
