[Moved from PMC as there is nothing really private involved]
DataStax has graciously offered to contribute cassandra-dtest  to
There were, however, two issues noted by Jonathan when he presented
the offer to the PMC:
1. dtest mixes tests for many cassandra versions together in a single
project. So having it live in the main cassandra repo, versioned by
cassandra release, doesn't really make sense. Is Infra able to create a
second repo for this, or is the "one project, one repo" mapping fixed?
2. DataStax did not require a CLA to contribute to dtest, so the non-DS
contributors to dtest would need to be contacted for their permission to
assign copyright to the ASF. Is the PMC willing to tackle this?
In a brief discussion, it was deduced that #1 can be addressed by
adding apache/cassandra-dtest to the ASF repo (the example of
apache/aurora and apache/aurora-packaging was given to justify this).
#2 will be harder as it will require tracking a few people people down
to sign ASF CLAs.
Before we really put effort into this, I wanted to open the discussion
up about whether we are willing to take on the development of this in
the project. Thoughts?
