Yes but they started shipping a newer version of the snappy compression
library. It's a java jar file with native libraries inside and they only
ship the libraries for Linux, windows, and OSX. We replace with our own
from the ports tree. It's not clear if our older version is ABI
compatible so we are looking at updating the snappy port but it's a bit
difficult because we have to do a bunch of custom work to make it build
without requiring internet access such as doing a bunch of Maven stuff
to cache all its build requirements locally. I'm not up to speed on that
and am discussing it with the maintainer right now.
tl;dr in progress, but want to be sure the update won't break the
ability to adopt APs or cause any other issues related to snappy
