Subject Re: ORC contribution from Alibaba
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2017 16:38:19 GMT
Gang and Xiening,
   This is exciting stuff and I'm looking forward to working with you. If
you can separate out the bug fixes from the refactoring, that would make
things much easier. (In particular, we should figure out which of them we
should back port to previous versions.)

Thanks,
   Owen
