      Description

      The HDFS permissions guide discusses our use of a POSIX-like model with read, write and execute permissions associated with users, groups and the catch-all other class. However, there is no documentation that describes exactly what permission checks are performed by user-facing HDFS operations. This is a frequent source of questions, so it would be good to document this.
