more specifics on working with the ASF press team

  
  Talk to VP, Brand Management for the ASF on trademarks@ first.

   "Today, Automotive Joe released the interfaces to enable the Apache Hadoop team to run
Hadoop against Automotive Joe's Crankshaft filesystem"

+ It's not appropriate to make press releases about Apache software unless you have the permission
of the [[http://www.apache.org/press/|ASF Press Team]]. They can advise you on content, and
will help you co-ordinate a press release from the ASF too. Announcing some contribution or
milestone in an Apache project without co-ordinating it with them isn't a good way to collaborate
with the ASF.
  
  Additionally, it's only when code is checked in to the source tree that something becomes
part of Hadoop. Until then, it's a JIRA issue that runs a serious risk of being ignored unless
it is compelling enough to the entire Hadoop community. To get your patches in:
   * Work against trunk, not with a past release.

   * Make sure your patch scales. This is a big fear of some of the major Hadoop users: that
a change to the scalability bottlenecks of the system -the Job Tracker and Name Node - may
work on Joe's ten machine cluster,  but hurt scale at the high end. Be careful when going
near this code, especially if you are unknown and untrusted.
   * Don't think that submitting some interface as a JIRA issue is a success worthy of publicity.
Wait until it has been committed -and work with the entire -dev team to get that to happen,
bearing in mind they are busy with lots of other issues, and not all full time developers.

  It is, of course, perfectly reasonable to make a press release about your own software,
as long as you don't imply any endorsement from the Apache Hadoop project.

to be involved in such announcements, as they can provide some advice and co-ordinate your
announcement with matching announcements from the ASF itself.
