Description of change

This API was never intended to be made public and was docs-only
deprecated in Node.js 6.x. This upgrades to a runtime deprecation
for Node.js 8.0.0

@nodejs/ctc ... any objections to this?

Per #6749 (comment), the most significant user of SyncWriteStream is the debug npm module.

I filed visionmedia/debug#280 («fs.SyncWriteStream is pending removal») there back then, but, judging from the feedback, perhaps it's needed only for rare usage cases. I asked them a question in a comment, waiting for an answer.

I will run a search with newer data to see if there are other significant SyncWriteStream users.

In general, I'm +1 to runtime deprecation of SyncWriteStream in 8.0.

Please note that this changes the file permission of fs.js, from 100644 to 100755

grr.. yeah, was having some issues with the file permission config setting when I switched laptops and operating systems. Will get this fixed before landing.

-1 if this is being used by debug. That is used by like 80% of the entire ecosystem. Are we exposing something for them to use instead of this?

No, the class was never intended to be made public and was never documented. The docs-only deprecation was added in v6 with the intention of upgrading it to a runtime deprecation. There is nothing to replace it with unless we want to reverse the deprecation and make it a fully supported API

Are we really going to add a runtime deprecation for a package that was downloaded 674,116 in the last day? It has 12,372 dependent (public) packages.

I'm -1 on this.

@evanlucas Good call. FWIW visionmedia/debug#406 removes the usage of SyncWriteStream

@evanlucas evanlucas commented Jan 3, 2017

@thefourtheye I saw that. My concern with that is that it will be done in a major bump (which it should), but that doesn't mean that all of the dependent packages will go through and update to debug@3

@jasnell jasnell commented Jan 3, 2017

That is the whole point of runtime deprecations is it not? To strongly encourage developers to move up to the newer version that does not have the problem?

Sure. That doesn't mean that it works. We even talked about this at NINA. Not everyone will update, just like we saw with Buffer without new. IMO, regardless of whether the API was meant to be made public, it still was made public. Is it a security issue or a severe performance hindrance? If not, I find it very hard to justify breaking the 675k 12k (public) packages that depend on it. What does deprecating this actually buy us?

I agree, I don’t really see so far what we are gaining by adding a runtime deprecations or why the original intentions of adding the API have an influence on which changes we make. (I don’t want to repeat everything I said in #7964 (comment), but imho we should always have a reason for adding deprecations that goes beyond “This is the next step in our deprecation policy”.)

breaking the 675k (public) packages that depend on it

That’s downloads/day, it’s “just” 12k packages ;)

@evanlucas judging from the debug code, that line was hit only in the cases when DEBUG_FD enviroment variable was specified to something other than 1 or 2 and tty_wrap.guessHandleType returned 'FILE' from that specified DEBUG_FD.

Note that specifing any DEBUG_FD enviroment variable now causes a runtime deprecation on the current version of the debug module (2.6.0), which got there in a semver-minor update of debug: visionmedia/debug#405.

DEBUG_FD support is also removed in the next major version of debug.

@evanlucas evanlucas commented Jan 5, 2017

@ChALkeR that is a fair point.

Seeing as it is about to be removed, can we at least wait to deprecate until after debug@3 has been released?

Holding off a bit is fine, there's no rush to get this landed. It can even land after 8.x is released if necessary

I find it very hard to justify breaking the 675k 12k (public) packages that depend on it.

This does not «break» those 12k public packages.

This will add a runtime warning to the DEBUG_FD=3 node script.js 3>debug.log usecase of those packages, which already shoots runtime deprecation warnings from the debug side, as of debug 2.6.0: https://github.com/visionmedia/debug/blob/2.6.0/src/node.js#L61-L63.

I don't see why exactly should we wait for debug 3.0 to deprecate this, as the current version of debug already has DEBUG_FD functionality runtime-deprecated.

Consensus (in the context of consensus-seeking governance) is not "most people seem in favor, so let's do it" although that's a common assumption people make. Instead, it is "no one is expressing opposition after being given sufficient opportunity to do so."

Correct, although I would note that it is only consensus among the committers involved in the discussion. People who fly into the comments and aren't committers are not counted in the consensus.

We have around a hundred committers, if any of them hold their objection it gets bubbled up to the CTC to see if the CTC can reach consensus. If they can't reach consensus a majority wins vote is called.

If either @addaleax or @bnoordhuis objects to this

For my part, I don't object strenuously, I just don't see a pressing reason to remove it. If the majority is in favor, I have no problem with that. Put me down for -0.

+1 to what Ben said. I don’t think I want to formally object to this, given how low its ecosystem usage appears to be…

I do still think “This API was never intended to be made public” is not a valid reason for deprecating anything, and I am not very comfortable with this PR setting a precedent for such actions.

That's fair. Let's go ahead and open it up as a @nodejs/ctc vote as I wouldn't feel right pushing it through over your reservations without doing so.
