Subject Avro connector
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2011 18:16:30 GMT
HBASE-2400 introduced a new connector contrib architecturally equivalent to the Thrift connector,
but using Avro serialization and associated transport and RPC server work. However, it remains
unfinished, was developed against an old version of Avro, is currently not maintained, and
is regarded as "not production quality" (see: http://www.quora.com/What-is-the-current-status-for-using-Avro-with-HBase).
Therefore I propose:

If a contributor steps up, then this person should bring the Avro connector up to par with
the Thrift connector.

Otherwise, we should deprecate and remove the Avro connector.

Best regards,
