Updated proposal: Consistent timestamp types in Hadoop SQL engines
I would like to thank every reviewer of the consistent timestamps
proposal for their time and valuable comments. Based on your
feedback, I have updated the proposal. The changes include
clarifications, fixes and other improvements as summarized at the end
of the document, in the Changelog section.
Another category of changes is declaring some topics as out-of-scope
with the intention to keep the scope under control. While these topics
are worth discussing, I suggest doing that in follow-up efforts. I
think it is easier to reach decisions in bite-sized chunks and the
proposal in its current form is already near the limit that is a
convenient read in a single sitting.
Please take a look at the updated proposal. I'm looking forward to
further feedback and suggestions.
