    • libwebhdfs has been retired in 2.8.0 due to the lack of maintenance.

    Description

      This library is basically a mess:

      • It's not part of the mvn package
      • It's missing functionality and barely maintained
      • It's not in the precommit runs so doesn't get exercised regularly
      • It's not part of the unit tests (at least, that I can see)
      • It isn't documented in any official documentation

      But most importantly:

      • It fails at it's primary mission of being pure C (HDFS-3917 is STILL open)

      Let's cut our losses and just remove it.
