Subject [GitHub] flink issue #2031: FLINK-3967 - Flink Sink for Rethink Db

    Hi @mans2singh !
    This looks like a good piece of work, and ReThinkDB is an interesting technology!
    An Apache-compatible licence is also good.
    We are facing a bit of a maintenance issue right now, though, with a large number of new
projects. There are so many possible DBs and connectors, and it is tough for the community
to maintain them all. For that reason, I would suggest to stage such contributions of new
and interesting connectors.
    Could you put this into an standalone GitHub project for now? We would link this repository
from the Apache Flink website and that way make it visible to the Flink community.
    When we see that we get frequent requests for a ReThinkDB, we would like to move this
to the core Flink code base.
    Following this idea, we would end up with frequently used connectors in the core Flink
repository, and a larger number of connectors in third party community repositories. I think
that would help the stability of the project and all connectors.
