Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-94) Expand list example to clarify null vs empty list
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2016 13:32:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-94?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15223286#comment-15223286

Wes McKinney commented on ARROW-94:
-----------------------------------

The only difference is the null bit -- you must propagate the current offset even with a stretch
of nulls so that random access is preserved . Best to clarify in the spec as you aren't the
first person to bring this up.

> The current spec seems to make the possibility of an empty list impossible (or at least
conflates it with null).
