We have two competing versions of this patch, the one in
HADOOP-8399, and a pair of patches here in HADOOP-8166. I have compared them and found HADOOP-8399 to be superior in terms of match to current branch-1.1.
HADOOP-8399 patches files: build.xml, forrest.properties, test-patch.sh
hadoop-8166 patches files: build.xml, do-release-build, forrest.properties, test-patch.sh
The changes to build.xml and forrest.properties are equivalent.
The file cloudera/do-release-build does not exist in Apache code.
The changes to test-patch.sh differ in several ways, but seem to match the branch-1.1 code better in
HADOOP-8399 applies smoothly to test-patch.sh, while HADOOP-8166 fails 3 of 9 chunks. Furthermore, after applying HADOOP-8399, all instances of 'java5' are gone, which makes all the substantive differences between the two patches irrelevant.
