Hi All, I’m investigating something a few ASF members contacted me about and pointed out, so I’m hoping you can help guide me here as a community. I have heard that a company, DataStax, whose marketing material mentions it as the only Cassandra vendor, “controls” the Java Driver for Apache Cassandra.
Of course, no company “controls” our projects or its code, so I told the folks that mentioned it to me that I’d investigate with my board hat on. I’d like to hear the community’s thoughts here on this. Does anyone in the community see this “controlling” behavior going on? Please speak up, as I’d like to get to the bottom of it, and I’ll be around on the lists, doing some homework and reading up on the archives to see what’s up. Thanks for any help you can provide in rooting this out. Cheers, Chris
