Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-547) authentication and authorization functions (stage 1)
Date Wed, 30 Dec 2009 18:08:29 GMT


Ted Zlatanov commented on CASSANDRA-547:

It's hard to produce a useful auth backend when I'm spending all of my available time on patches
and fixing Thrift errors.  Also, this is stage 1, see at the beginning for the goals.  I want
to be sure we're OK with the design before I implement the backend.  I'll get you the revised
patches, as incrementals as you requested.

I don't want to work against the old Thrift.  Backporting is possible but I don't see the
point, since Thrift is not going back to the old version.

Keyspace + login fixes are coming.  I have them but dropped them in the patch by accident.
