             Summary: Packaged Apache Beam for Google Cloud users
                 Key: LEGAL-254
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-254
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: James Malone


Howdy,

In the past Google provided customers with "Cloud Dataflow SDKs" based in different languages
(Java, Python) for use with the Google Cloud Dataflow service. We've since moved the SDKs
to the Apache Beam (incubating) project.

Cloud Dataflow will be one runner in Beam, however, as a runner it probably won't actively
support all of the bells an whistles within Beam. Additionally, we want to ensure we provide
timely support for those customers and not disrupt the larger ASF project.

To this end, we're planning on repackaging a subset/scoped version of Beam for use with Google
Cloud Dataflow - that way customers using that particular runner have an SDK scoped specifically
for that service. That package will remain ASL2'd and will still create valid Beam pipelines
(so it's not a weird fork.)

I wanted to ping Legal Discuss with the plan before we did it to see if there are major concerns
or blocks. 

Thanks!

James
