Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-147) Add a Snappy compressor
Date Tue, 23 Jul 2013 14:02:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-147?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13716403#comment-13716403

Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-147:
-----------------------------------------

No, we don't just absorb other people's code just because the license is compatible.  Either
it is a voluntary contribution or we just don't add it.  Dain would know how to contribute
it :-)

We could provide wrappers like we do for XZ - but had to extra be careful to make that dependency
really optional so people can use Compress without installing the Snappy lib if they don't
want to use the algorithm.  In the XZ case it took us a few iterations to get it right.
