Consider whether this should live in Contrib or not #3

A pro for Contrib would be that the existing implementation could be updated to use the new, faster implementation (Contrib libs should not depend on external libraries). It's an open question as to whether that is worth doing (there may be some sharp edges trying to fit the two together, especially where deliberate API changes have been made in next.jdbc).

This page outlines what Contrib libs are and what their benefits are:

  • Source control - Git libraries on GitHub
  • Issues - JIRA
  • Development model - patches in JIRA, no PRs
  • Continuous integration - Jenkins
  • Doc generation and hosting - Autodoc and GitHub pages
  • Builds - Maven with deployment to Maven Central under the groupId org.clojure

In addition, I think the org.clojure group ID and the presence of documentation on provide some boost to the visibility/reach of a library.

As it stands, next.jdbc has:

  • Source control - Git library on GitHub
  • Issues - GitHub
  • Development model - issues and PRs in GitHub
  • Continuous integration - CircleCI (without building artifacts)
  • Builds - manual to Clojars under the group ID seancorfield

Documentation is auto-generated on

Only the "authority" / "visibility" of the clojure org on GitHub and the org.clojure group ID have been given up and I now feel that's less valuable than I had initially thought based on some feedback from other Clojurians.
