This issue is to un-deprecate the "old" MapReduce API (in o.a.h.mapred) in the next 0.20 release, as discussed at http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg01833.html
Patch against branch-0.20
+1. I generated javadoc for this change and it looked good.
Thanks Tom. Committed to branch-0.20.
I already made the tag for the 0.20.3. Pushing this to 0.20.4.
This was a decision, so it should also go into one of the current 0.20.2xx release. Helps avoid a lot of confusion.
Harsh - good point. Do you want to provide a patch asap? I'll commit to 0.20.2xx, thanks!
I checked, the original still applies clean - should I go ahead commit it?
Re-open to commit to 0.20.205.
+1. I agree with Arun and Harsh. Please commit to 205 and 20-security. Thanks.
Thanks Arun, for taking this up. Sorry I hadn't hit 'watch' on this one when I got here last time, so did not get your request in time. Would be glad to add in anything else you'd want me to.
Thanks Harsh & Matt. I've committed this to 0.20.205.
