Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-8188) Clean up flink-contrib
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2017 19:01:00 GMT
Bowen Li created FLINK-8188:

             Summary: Clean up flink-contrib
                 Key: FLINK-8188
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-8188
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: Bowen Li

This is the umbrella ticket for cleaning up flink-contrib. 

We argue that flink-contrib should be removed and all its submodules should be migrated to
other top-level modules for the following reasons: 

1) Apache Flink the whole project itself is a result of contributions from many developers,
there's no reason to highlight some contributions in a dedicated module named 'contrib'
2) flink-contrib is already too crowded and noisy. It contains lots of sub modules with different
purposes which confuse developers and users, and they lack a proper project hierarchy
3) This will save us quite some build time
