Re: Guava upgrade?

Hi Paul,

There is a ticket with some work done for upgrading to Guava 26 (
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-14655 ).  It looks like
there are no breaking changes between Guava 26 and 27, so it might just
work if that patch is accepted.

With regards to shading, I'm not sure if there is precedent for doing that
in the project since Cassandra is primarily used as a standalone
application and not an embedded dependency (although of course it can be
used in this way), but Guava would probably be a good place to start.  On
the other hand I think the Guava team is much more mindful about not making
breaking changes these days, so it may not be as needed as before once C*
gets to a newer version.
