Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Separating out the metastore as its own TLP
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2017 17:57:32 GMT
It seems we have settled into a consensus that this will be good for the
ecosystem, but there are concerns that this will be a burden on Hive.  The
original proposal included a time to work on the separation inside the Hive
project to help address any such issues.  This would culminate in a source
only release of the metastore inside Hive.  I propose we start working on
that internal separation now.  I’ll file an umbrella JIRA for it soon.

Alan.
