Subject Re: [Proposal] Component changes for Apache Airflow
Date Thu, 30 May 2019 03:52:08 GMT
I think there is a discussion (and some work already done) to move more
mature operators/hooks from the 'contrib' directory to the main directory
for hooks/operators so I think "contrib-" prefix might be too easily
confused with the *"*contrib*"* folder until this is finalised.

I think we need a better "abstraction" name for "operators+hooks" as we
might also use it in the upcoming documentation update. Something that will
easily separate out "core" from the "operators+hooks" specific for
particular external system.

I am afraid I will open Pandora's box :) (we all know naming is hard
<>), but  Maybe "ext"
might be a good prefix ("ext-gcp", "ext-kubernetes", "ext-aws"). It can be
understood as both "extension" and "external" depending whether it is used
in context of Airflow (extension) or the Operator (external system to
connect to)?
