Is the project still active?

December 23, 2020 at 10:13pm
Hello everyone,
I am very impressed about the work done in Weld, and I am even more thrilled about the usage of Rust / LLVM to optimize big data workloads. Still, I am willing to contribute or extend the project, but it seems the project is in a hiatus since April 2020.
Have (shoumik) & its team ceased to work in this project? Do you know if there is any active fork? I'd love to hear from someone about this! 😃

I asked the same thing a few months ago. It does not appear that anyone is working on it. No one is responding either.

Sorry for the late responses! We're currently not actively working on this project anymore, though I hope to pick it up as a side project eventually. I'm happy to look at contributions, however.

Hi (shoumik) , thanks for answering this quickly! It's sad to hear that, although the research is promising and I am willing to get it into production for a small company project.

Actually, I am more interested in the "Split Annotations" project (https://github.com/weld-project/split-annotations). As it belongs to the weld project, is it following the same contribution rules? Would someone of the team be interested in proposing or discussing a package structure?
Thanks in advance!

I have a fork of this project with a better package structure for the Python release here: https://github.com/sppalkia/split-annotations/tree/python-release. If you're interested in contributing to the project, it may be easier to adopt this fork instead. Note some of the experiments/benchmarks may not work with this code since it was a work in progress when I last touched it.
