Well, this is slightly incorrect. It wasn't really fixed for .22.
That's why I opened
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2377 as part of Bigtop work on .22.
I hoped that RMs would actively monitor HDFS, MAPRED and COMMON
jira traffic, since given the unfortunate proliferation of branches in
Hadoop one
never knows which branch your users will be reporting the bugs in.

That said, you're right -- I should have been more explicit and push for it
to be included in .205 (honestly, I'm really surprised this is like the 4th time
Cos has to commit the same fix to a different branch :-().

I find this really difficult to believe. Either I'm doing something incorrectly,
or you guys had 0 testing with unsecured deployments of Hadoop.

If there's a way to start an unsecure datanode without running into this
issue I'd appreciate it very much if you could tell me how.

I would appreciate that. What's the time frame for the release?

That is, actually, predicated on keeping us in the loop as part of the release
criteria. If you feel that Bigtop adds value to the hadoop release process
I'd love to collaborate with you on any future releases that you might
want to do.

Does that make sense?
