I would appreciate it very much to have Debian/Amd64 be a first-class citizen of bigtop.

And yes, I am would step in as a maintainer for it.

I bootstraped debian/stable and debian/testing (with one exception) right now.
My personal tree/commits is at right now.
I still have to package commits into JIRA ...

No AFAIK we could enforce C.UTF-8. But we should report this issue upstream, too.

No. but can look into it again.

I am using pure lxc containers for testing  right now.

Docker is not in best shape in debian stable.

I did not test it, since I am concentrating getting the compile stable at first.

it stopped in site:deploy Target of giraph. Error message : class StringUtils is missing in
org.apache.commons.lang. (All packages I found on this machine have it )

Yes. I bootstrapped bigtop / trunk on jessie, without hue, since there was a obscure python
problem ( the link to the python interpreted is borked all the time).

Ah! that explains a lot!
