Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-547) authentication and authorization functions (stage 1)
Date Tue, 29 Dec 2009 21:05:29 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-547:

thanks for the progress!

these should be separate patches:

 - upgrading libthrift
 - refactoring existing code like your introduction of ThriftGlue (which I am skeptical of,
btw; I don't see the value in introducing gratuitous factories)
 - adding new functionality

don't submit recompiled gen-java code in your patch; that makes it difficult to eyeball what
is really changing.  the committer will take care of that for you.

We know patch management via Jira is painful, but there are some links about how to use git
to minimize the pain here:
