This is a Beta draft of the CDH 5 documentation. Since the current release of CDH 5 is in beta form, it should not be used for production purposes and it is solely for evaluation purposes. For production use, please use CDH 4. For the latest CDH 4 documentation, go to this CDH 4 Documentation page.
About CDH Package Manifests
Both the CDH patched source and packages contain explicit information about Cloudera modifications. For example, in the patched source there is a top-level cloudera directory with:
- A CHANGES.cloudera.txt file that lists all the changes to the pristine source
- A patches directory that contains every patch Cloudera has applied to the pristine source. All Cloudera patches are released with an Apache 2.0 license.
- A files directory for files Cloudera created from scratch, such as man pages and configuration files. All Cloudera files are released with an Apache 2.0 license.
- A README.cloudera file that explains explicitly how to recreate the patches source from the pristine source.
