Subject Re: [VOTE] KIP-339: Create a new IncrementalAlterConfigs API
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2018 18:11:02 GMT
Can you explain more why we can't add "incremental" to the existing API and
then deprecate the old behavior? The "rejected" section says: "We would
also not have been able to deprecate the non-incremental mode." but I'm not
sure why not.

Having two APIs "Alter" and "Modify" with slightly different behavior that
is not obvious from their name (i.e. would anyone remember which one is
incremental?) seems pretty bad. Add the fact that in databases, "alter" is
incremental and things will get confusing pretty fast. Obviously if
deprecating the old behavior is impossible, than we have no choice - but I
don't see why it would be impossible.
