Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-13486) Upstream Power arch specific code
Date Thu, 04 May 2017 08:44:04 GMT


Stefan Podkowinski commented on CASSANDRA-13486:

Although I realize that we don't promote third party plugins, I also don't see how merging
the PR would solve the visibility issue. There's zero documentation included. How would users
even know about this new functionality in Cassandra?

As for our plugin APIs, my impression is that we did a decent job in the past to keep them
compatible across version. This might also be due to the fact that Cassandra's largest contributor
is making use of at least some APIs to implement and offer proprietary extensions. It's in
everyone's interest to keep APIs stable and at least deprecate APIs in a controlled way. But
this is just my point of view and this is something that should be discussed on the dev list
instead for broader consensus. Your feedback and sharing your expectations as developer is
most welcome.
