Re: Behavior of SaveMode.Append when table is not present
Right now, it is up to the source implementation to decide what to do. I think path-based tables (with no metastore component) treat an append as an implicit create.
If you're thinking that relying on sources to interpret SaveMode is bad for consistent behavior, I agree. That's why the community adopted a proposal to standardize logical plans and the behavior expected of data sources for the v2 API.
