Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3834) make locator pluggable/abstract
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2012 03:18:10 GMT


Peter Schuller commented on CASSANDRA-3834:

I originally talked about this as "making gossiper pluggable" but that makes no sense because
the word gossiper is specified to, well, gossip. I used the word "locator" here because it
seemed the most near/obvious given the package name. I am definitely open to other naming
