Re: Evolving the client protocol


DataStax invested millions of dollars into Cassandra, tens of thousands of
man hours, hosted hundreds of events and has been a major factor in the
success of the project.

ScyllaDB wants us to change the C* protocol in order to improve features in
a competing database which contributes nothing back to the Cassandra
community.

Seems a little different to me.
