Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2761) JDBC driver does not build
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2011 20:44:30 GMT


Eric Evans commented on CASSANDRA-2761:

It's been another two weeks and we're still in this no-man's land where git can't see drivers

So does this mean you've decided Git is hard a requirement?  Our project is (unfortunately
)managed in SVN.  You know if it were up to me we'd be using Git for source control, but it's
not up to me and we don't.

...anything that depends on jdbc like 3010 is basically SOL.

As I've already mentioned, CASSANDAR-3010 is for a JDBC using _application_.  If it's SOL
unless the driver is embedded in the tree, then so is every other application that would make
use of the driver.  If the driver is so bad, maybe no one should be using it.  Why are we
giving ourselves special treatment?

Again, I'm not against purity...

By saying "purity" it sounds like you're dismissing it as something that's based on aesthetics.
 I assure that's not the case, it's about avoiding the inevitable lock-step relationship release-wise.

...but it's clear that the original breaking out of drivers/ was done prematurely (was there
even a Jira ticket with a patch?

There was a Jira yes, though I'm pretty sure it done as part of larger set of tasks, something
with a description other than "relocate drivers out of tree".  And, I don't think it was in
a patch, no, due to the fact that a large move with some minor changes was (a) straightforward,
and (b) would have needed rebasing several times a day.

It looks like we went from "that's a good idea" on -dev to ripping apart svn). I've reverted
things until the breakout can be done properly.

So all I need to do is find a ticket and a +1 and I can -1 this, and revert your revert?
