What you say is true Doug, but the most important thing is that he's 
updating the public project his local changes on a fairly frequent basis.

Far too many folks simply never get around to pushing their code out at 
all (typically thinking they'll do it at "1.0" or after "one more 
thing...").

I'm sure the size and frequency of patches will follow a natural course 
of change as HBase matures.

Also I notice that Jim K just became a committer, and that will probably 
smooth out the process too.

And I'm looking forward to giving HBase a whirl myself before too long!
