Hi Prashant, The only real difference between core and contrib extensions is that contrib extensions don't have an official maintainer. If people are interested in stepping up and maintaining the redis extension then it would make sense in core. Maybe you are interested :)? Maintenance of an extension like this mostly involves reviewing patches for it and making sure it is compatible with the latest releases of redis.
Btw, since we are migrating the dev mailing list to Apache, please cross post this sort of thing with email@example.com, or even only post to that list. I have cross posted my reply here to both lists. Gian On Sat, Apr 7, 2018 at 11:32 AM, Prashant Deva <prashant.d...@gmail.com> wrote: > Redis is significantly more popular than memcached.
