Neha, thanks for the response.
So the only point of the magic byte is to indicate that the rest of the message is Avro encoded? I noticed that in Camus a 4 byte int id of the schema is written instead of the 16 byte SHA. Is this the new preferred way? Which is compatible with https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1124?
