Hi Josh, and Eric,

Thanks. As for the IP clearances and stuff, yes, makes total sense. Eric
anyone that contributed to this patch need and should have ASF ICLAs on
It's a simple process, download the ICLA here:

And submit it for each individual contributor to

Beyond that it may be nice in this case since it's got corporate stuff
attached to it to see if Data Tactics is willing to sign an Apache
Contributor License Agreement (CCLA):

Not a requirement by any means, but a nice thing. So Eric and others at
Data Tactics, that's something to consider.

Once that's taken care, the Accumulo PMC can take on the stewardship of
the code if someone on that PMC like Josh is willing to work through any
that that person (or others on the PMC) have with bringing it on board.
Also since Apache is a meritocracy, Eric and others, you will be credited
for the work that you contribute and if you keep doing so over time, and
creating work for the Accumulo PMC members, your work will likely be

The Incubator PMC is there as a clearinghouse for new projects and new
communities to begin their journey towards Apache individual project
status (TLP) and the Apache way. Eric: do you see this project as an
new community that is complementary to Accumulo? If so, the Incubator would
be a good route to go. If you see this as part of core Accumulo (or even
and you can convince someone on the PMC like Josh to help shepherd this
into their PMC, that's also another route.
