There are companies that are using this version in production. For be compatible with them, I added this Formula.

How is this different from other Hadoops?

This version can be used for operating an remote hadoop cluster which uses the same version. Otherwise there will be a version mismatch and it won't work.

How exactly is this related to Hadoop---is it a development version, a fork or something else?

Hadoop-0.20 is now called "legacy stable version" on, but companies are just keep using it.

1.0.X - current stable version, 1.0 release
1.1.X - current beta version, 1.1 release
0.23.X - current alpha version, MR2
0.22.X - does not include security
0.20.203.X - legacy stable version

There are two differences between this Formula and the one you already had.

  • This is version 0.20.
  • This is distributed by Cloudrea, the most popular distribution of Hadoop.

I want to install a hadoop command line client with homebrew. The client that you had (in hadoop version 1.0) is not compatible with a hadoop cluster that is running 0.20.

Perhaps this should go to Homebrew-versions if it is a distribution of the old 0.2 release series.

Agreed, please reopen this on Homebrew-versions.
