Subject Re: what tool will create noncql columnfamilies in cassandra 3a

I know you meant 3.0 by "next major" but just for the sake of not confusing
anyone reading, the current plan is to remove the cassandra-cli in Cassandra
3.0 which will not be the next major release (the next major will be 2.1)
but
the one after that.

> How will users adjust the meta data of non cql column families

The rational for removing cassandra-cli is mainly that maintaining 2 fully
featured command line interface is a waste of the project resources in the
long
run. It's just a tool using the thrift interface however and you'll still be
able to adjust metadata through the thrift interface as before. As Patricia
mentioned, there is even some existing interactive options like pycassaShell
in the community.

On top of that, for most day-to-day modifications (compaction strategy,
compression options, caching, gc_grace, ...), cqlsh is as convenient as
would the cli even for Thrift only users.
