Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move Type out of KeyValue
Date Fri, 29 Sep 2017 08:57:44 GMT
Even if we are trying to move out I think only few of the types are really
user readable. So we should be very careful here. So since we have
CellBuilder way it is better we check what type of cells a user can build.
I think for now the Cellbuilder is not client exposed?
But again moving to Cell means it becomes public which is not right IMO and
I thinks others here also agree to it.

Regards
Ram
