Subject Re: Any chance of getting cassandra releases published to

OK, to keep everyone up to date, I have been working on getting the
one non-ASL licensed dependency that is not in central into central

Should have that sorted soon enough, at which point my plan is as follows.

Get the 0.7.0 release in central in its current uber-jar form... it
would be nice to have this split into the client libraries... but at
this point in time that seems to be seen as too much risk for 0.7.0,
so I'll not fight that. Any ASL licensed dependencies not already in
central will be pushed to central under the org.apache.cassandra
groupId (i.e. libthrift, etc) The cassandra project is already
redistributing these artifacts, so there is no harm in doing that via

Then try and help in splitting out the next version into separate
jars.... and try and help the upstream ASL licensed projects to get
into central (I note that libthrift is supposed to be making progress)

This may require me to get my hands really dirty and try and help
hadoop get a release out.... ;-)
