Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Component/Plugin repository
Date Thu, 30 May 2019 16:25:20 GMT
I would put them outwith the broker repository. Not really because of
bloat, which was only a very small part of why I didnt think the
proposed Kafka Bridge should live inside the broker repo+package for
example, but thats certainly also something to keep in mind given the
build is pretty large/slow already.

I wouldnt say a single plugin repository is necessarily a great idea,
it can tend to become a bit of a dumping ground for idea-of-the-week,
but the main thing for me would be that components should be
independently released if there were to be a bunch of optional
components with mostly unrelated functionality in the same place (e.g,
the ideas mentioned in this thread already seem mostly independent).
