@dcomartin My time timzone is UTC + 2, I guess you are a few to several hours behind. Am preparing for vacation now so I'll leave this here...
Firstly, many thanks for offering to help with a MySql impl. :)
I'm still tuning the Cedar ES philosophy but the key parts are in the repo readme. My driving needs are that I need an ES that supports RDBMS for on-prem installs because I'm not going to be able convince our conservative customers to install & maintain GetEventStore. On the other hand, for our cloud backed services, I want us to be able to leverage GetEventStore where desirable. Thus I'd like an API and behavior that works as similarly as possible regardless of RDMBS vs GES (yes, there is always some leakiness). It also provides a smoother migration path for teams adopting ES and maturing to GES in their systems.
A key difference between this and NEventStore is that I'm not interested in supporting nosql stores. I am of the opinion that if one is in the position of choosing a NoSql solution (i.e. mongo, big-table-whateva) you should be in a position to use GES or write your own specialized ES. I also don't care for a whole lot of the other configurable stuff such as compression and encryption. It was hardly used in practice.
If this rocks your boat, I'd be delighted if you could contrib a MySql impl. But.. I'd also need you to assist in maintaining it. (I'll set up Github org etc). That includes hanging out here etc until it's v1 and around major versions.
