[jira] [Commented] (AVRO-2001) Add support for doc in the Ruby library for Avro schemas

Wyatt Anderse commented on AVRO-2001:

This issue is holding up a project I'm working on. While we can use a fork with support for doc I'd much prefer to stay with the core project. I'm happy to write the code to resolve this issue, and I'm actively working on a GitHub PR with proper unit tests and formatting. First PR to this project to feel free to let me know if I'm going about anything incorrectly.

> The Avro schema and protocol specification(http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html) allows for an optional attribute "doc" defined as, "a JSON string describing this field for users." Users should be able to include a doc with each field for "records" (http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#N10085) and "enums" (http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#N10186).
> This doc attribute should be stripped when transforming into "Parsing Canonical Form" (http://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#N10815).
> Currently, the Ruby Avro library (https://github.com/apache/avro/tree/master/lang/ruby) does not support doc. It is supported in other languages libraries, for example PHP (https://github.com/apache/avro/blob/master/lang/php/lib/avro/schema.php#L46).
> Not supporting doc in Ruby causes confusion for the end user, and prevents that end use from taking advantage of a useful tool for managing complex schema.
> doc should be supported for schema and protocols in the Apache Ruby Avro library.
> Possible implementation: https://github.com/lostphilosopher/avro/tree/add_doc_to_schema based on https://github.com/apache/avro/pull/14/commits/164fb49f80dfaac421639e6249a6f92c802a50b6.
