Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1066) http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/ front page is not user-friendly
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2007 20:49:59 GMT
Looks great.  However, the first line of text says "Hadoop is a  
software platform lets one easily write and run applications that  
process vast amounts of data."  It's missing the word "that" after  

Also, the word "one" is passive.  "you" would be better.
