I'm fine with this interface change (we are still pre 1.0) but need to add RELEASE NOTES about it and to let folks know if this breaks compatibility.
Will this break wire compatibility between sources and sinks of different versions of flume? (even if they are never used) If so please put info about this incompatiblity into the RELEASE NOTES (and add a 0.9.4 section). Removal should be noted in RELEASE NOTES as well.
FLUME-521: Remove a bunch of deprecated Thrift code
Review Request #1586 — Created Feb. 15, 2011 and submitted
There were some sinks and stuff that were deprecated. I wanted to get rid of them and the support code rather than update it to support some new features.
Tests seem to pass. TestChokeDecos fails for me but that is an old failure, I think.
Added RELEASENOTES change.
