Subject Questions for HAWQ dev community: Pluggable storage formats and files systems vs. PXF
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2017 19:02:30 GMT
To the HAWQ dev community,

I wanted to raise up an issue for discussion regarding JIRA HAWQ-786
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAWQ-786>. This is a proposal for a
new component/functionality (Framework to support pluggable formats and
file systems) that appears to replace that currently provided by the PXF

PXF was recently re-used in another open source project: Greenplum-DB (
https://github.com/greenplum-db/gpdb/tree/5X_STABLE/gpAux/extensions/pxf )
and depends on the server-side components that exist today in HAWQ’s source

The question I have for the community is: with the possibility of PXF being
replaced by a new component in a future release of HAWQ, what should become
of the PXF code? Older releases of HAWQ (2.3.0 >) will continue to use it
but there is an outside project now depending on it.

Does the HAWQ community want to maintain the PXF code in the HAWQ project
or if not here, where? If the GPDB community forked PXF from HAWQ would
that be ok?
