Subject Tagging Flink classes with InterfaceAudience and InterfaceStability
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2015 14:46:22 GMT
Hi,

Hadoop has annotations for tagging the stability and audience of classes
and methods.

Through that, you can have @InterfaceAudience.Public, Private,
LimitedPrivate
and also @InterfaceStability.Evolving, Unstable, and Stable.

I guess there are tools which allow to automatically check if interfaces,
which are marked as Stable have been changed between releases (or by pull
requests).

I think such annotations are crucial if we want to guarantee interface
stability between releases.

What do you think? Should we add those annotations? Which one would you
like to add?


Robert
