Subject Re: Cloud native images for ASF projects.

Hi Jay,

Have you file a JIRA for this issue?
I'll follow up on JIRA in future.

I'm interested in BigTop curated dockerfiles.
I've put automated build docker images on docker hub.
But it's currently based on BigTop 1.1.0.
Source are available at

~$ docker search jazzwang | grep bigtop
jazzwang/bigtop-hdfs              Apache BigTop HDFS in
pseudo-distributed mode   1                    [OK]
jazzwang/bigtop-pig               Apache Pig Quick Start Image
           1                    [OK]
jazzwang/bigtop-sqoop             Apache Sqoop Quick Start Image
           1                    [OK]
