Subject Re: Why is the cassandra documentation such poor quality?
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2014 07:10:34 GMT
Hi Kevin,

The difference here is that the Apache Cassandra site is maintained by the
community whereas the DataStax site is maintained by paid employees with a
vested interest in producing documentation.

With DataStax having some comprehensive docs, I guess the desire for people
to maintain the Apache site has dwindled. However, if you are interested in
contributing to it and bringing it back up to standard you can, thus is the
freedom of open source.
