Subject Arrow Format vs Feather v2
Date Thu, 23 Apr 2020 21:19:47 GMT
Was just reading the 0.17 release notes (congratulations to the maintainers, btw), and was
wondering if there could be some clarification on the language about file formats.

The notes mention that the compression support available for Feather 2 will be formalized
in the Arrow format at a later time.

Does that mean that they will be formalized for in-memory and on the wire Arrow messages?
Or that there will be another, separate from Feather 2, on-disk representation for Arrow called
“Arrow file format” or something along those lines?
