[GSoC] memcached priorities
I'm looking to do my GSoC project with MariaDB, specifically the suggestion
to "Port the InnoDB memcached interface to MariaDB" on the page
But the project description links to a JIRA bug at
where the author suggests that we support memcached through TCP/UDP
instead, with no mention of the InnoDB plugin.
I figure that the InnoDB plugin is more important, since it's a MySQL 5.6
feature, it's widespread in industry, and the lack of a memcache interface
is one of only a handful X's for MariaDB on
Additionally, even without TCP/UDP support, one could just code the
memcache logic manually anyway, whereas the InnoDB integration is more
sophisticated and feature-rich and would be a good selling point for SkySQL.
So I'd like to start working on a proposal. Can any devs weigh in on which
aspect of memcache is more desirable for MariaDB? If it sounds likes a
good, straightforward GSoC project that nobody else has claimed yet?
