plugins makes 100% sense. that’s how OpenStack stayed vendor agnostic and inclusive
Malini Bhandaru

certification would involve vendor supplying a plug-in that works

Yes Malini - they make sense but then we drop our platform independence - a core tenent of EdgeX since day 1.
Malini Bhandaru

Jim, what do you mean by platform independence .. as in self contained?
Jim White

No - you can't build Go Plugins in Windows. So if we went with plugins, we could not ship EdgeX on Windows native (and some other platforms too).
