GIRAPH-275 was a victim of this weekend's outage of the JIRA site. When I rebased the patch, I did it from a version that was not the last one I uploaded before said outage.
When I rebased the patch today, my most current version was not available to work from. So I forgot to perform the last fix it needed: to take the "localityLimit" constant on line 138 (used on line 536) of BspServiceMaster.java and make it static, and to change the name to LOCALITY_LIMIT to match proper convention.
For those that already know how to create and upload a patch, please let this wait, its a perfect chance for someone new to submitting patches (and to Giraph) to test drive the process. Thanks!
