I definitely agree on the importance of a curated set of related outside
projects. I'd much rather we not have links that answer the question "How
do I search github for Accumulo projects?" since that doesn't really answer
the question of "What are Accumulo related projects I should care about?"

Maybe we shouldn't continue to separate "contrib projects" in Accumulo and
"ecosystem projects" that are hosted and run elsewhere to the extent we
currently do. If I'm looking for examples of things that leverage Accumulo
I probably don't want to look at two different places on our website. Maybe
we could list the Accumulo hosted contribs and the external projects on an
ecosystem page? "Powered by Accumulo" maybe?
