As a datapoint -- I poked around HDP2 (the distro that Ambari seems to
support in the best possible way) and it looked very similar to Bigtop
in layout and everything else. Perhaps it won't be that big of a deal to
adopt Ambari to support Bigtop distro natively. That would have an
added benefit of all the Bigtop-derived distros (Cloudera, Hortonworks,
Intel, Pivotal, WANDisco) getting the baseline support for free.

I'd love to help from Bigtop side of things, but my Ambari foo is weak
enough to request somebody from the Ambari team of developers
to help.

So... if there's enough interest, perhaps we can find a way?
