The Project Split

Categories: Community General Hadoop HDFS MapReduce

Last Wednesday, we hosted a Hadoop meetup, and I gave a short talk about the new project split. How does the split change the project’s organization, and what does it mean for end users?

The mailing lists and the source code repositories have been rearranged. For those doing development against Hadoop’s “trunk” branch, compiling Hadoop and using the various components in concert has become more complicated.

My presentation slides cover which mailing lists to subscribe to, where the source repositories are located, and how to compile and run the development version of Hadoop.
