Hello everyone,

I would like to propose a new project, TrieMap, as detailed in
https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/Project_Proposals:Triemap.

This would be an Oxygen-timeframe spin-off from YANG Tools, which is
currently hosting the codebase due to it being the topmost project
requiring the implementation.

There are three reasons for splitting the code from YANG Tools:
- the code is outside of scope of YANG Tools
- the code does not have any dependencies on other code in YANG Tools
- the code is almost feature-complete at this stage and very stable,
hence would benefit from independent versioning

Please review the proposal, any feedback is welcome.

an entire formal new ODL project for these... 5 classes strikes me as .. curious.

I noticed that you have, apparently in vain, attempted to contribute to upstream https://github.com/romix/java-concurrent-hash-trie-map ... in an ideal world, that guy, whoever he is, should just make you a committer on that repo, but I'm guessing from seeing PRs here https://github.com/romix/java-concurrent-hash-trie-map/pulls ignore that's not going to happen? ;-)

But so instead of a new top level ODL project how about just:

(a) just keep this on your personal GitHub, release to Maven central, and depend on it in yangtools? This code is for a very general data structure, and has nothing at all to do with ODL SDN as such.

(b) just integrate this either as a new package in an existing bundle or as a new bundle into an existing ODL project instead of creating yet another one? infrautils comes to mind - personally that's what I think it's for (general infra structure "lower than" yangtools). I do understand you have some sort of reservations about infrautils, but you are a commmitter on it, so you are more than welcome to contribute whatever you think is needed in infrautils to make it suitable for consumption e.g. by yangtools.

Just my 2 cents. If others feel strongly in favour of starting to have many "micro" projects at the top-level in ODL, then I have no strong objections against that either. But then we could start doing that for many other bunch of 5 classes as well...
 
Regards,
Robert
