This is a set of good housekeeping things for 0.8 open source release:https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-718
This is just a small set of trivial cleanups that are very visible:
- Fix logging for tools so we don't spew log messages in with tool output
- Fix GC settings so we don't default to "stop the world"
- Modularlize the script variables so you can override just gc, logging, etc
- Remove delete-topic.sh because it doesn't work.
- Remove incorrect things from README
- Remove unused properties and deprecated properties from
config/server.properties that give warnings
- Misc. cleanup of config comments that were incorrect
This is the fsync management patch for trunk:https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-615
I can't really do any testing on trunk until this is in.
