Subject Re: Avro RPC?
Date Wed, 22 Dec 2010 17:23:21 GMT
I've seen one or two instances of bit-rot in the avro CassandraServer,
and I suspect there are probably others.  It doesn't get first-class
testing status, so I suspect it will be buggy unless it gets more
usage by others.

One other aspect is there is a fair amount of code baggage that needs
to be maintained to convert between some thrirft and avro structures
for the schema updates.  A lot of that would go away if avro did,
which would give me some gratification.
