Thanks for this contribution @XiaoZYang! Pulsar seems like an interesting
I think before we proceed with this, we need to make it clear
(community-wise) that if we do accept this connector, there will be a
maintainer for it.
In the past, we had connector contributions that remained stale (because
nobody was maintaining it) after it was merged to the codebase, which
eventually started causing problems such as test instabilities and even the
connector itself being in an unusable state without nobody realizing it.
Because of that, our previous approach was to redirect new connector
contributions to the Apache Bahir project.
I personally think that the Flink community could still benefit from good
connector contributions, and would be best if we can somehow keep them within
Flink but still have good eyes on them.
Maybe it would be a good idea to start a thread in the developer mailing
lists about this connector, and whether or not it will be maintained (by either
the original contributor or someone else) after it gets merged.
What do you think?
