Re: Which branch for my patch?

I think that the branch you put it on depends mostly on where you and others what to see this feature (splittable Gzip) go in.  At a minimum you should target trunk.  If you want to see it go into 1.* then you probably also want to port it to that line (branch-1).  Once they are in porting it to other branches should be fairly simple and really depends on where you and others want to use your feature.

Hi all,

A while ago I created a feature for Hadoop and submitted this to be
included (HADOOP-7076) .
Around the same time the MRv2 started happening and the entire source tree
was restructured.

At this moment I'm prepared to change the patch I created earlier so I can
submit it again for your consideration.

Caused by the email about the new branches (branch-1 and branch-1.0) I'm a
bit puzzled at this moment where to start.

I see the mentioned branches and the trunk at probable starting points.

As far as I understand the repository structure the branch-1 is the basis
for the "old style" Hadoop and the trunk is the basis for the "yarn" Hadoop.

For which branch of the source tree should I make my changes so you guys
will reevaluate it for inclusion?


Best regards / Met vriendelijke groeten,
