    Thanks for this contribution @XiaoZYang! Pulsar seems like an interesting project.
    
    I think before we proceed with this, we need to make it clear (community-wise) that if
we do accept this connector, there will be a maintainer for it.
    
    In the past, we had connector contributions that remained stale (because nobody was maintaining
it) after it was merged to the codebase, which eventually started causing problems such as
test instabilities and even the connector itself being in an unusable state without nobody
realizing it.
    
    Because of that, our previous approach was to redirect new connector contributions to
the Apache Bahir project.
    
    I personally think that the Flink community could still benefit from good connector contributions,
and would be best if we can somehow keep them within Flink but still have good eyes on them.
    Maybe it would be a good idea to start a thread in the developer mailing lists about this
connector, and whether or not it will be maintained (by either the original contributor or
someone else) after it gets merged.
    
    What do you think?
