Subject Re: Mumak is still active?
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2010 01:28:56 GMT

We (at Yahoo) are still doing some work in and on top of Mumak in  
Yahoo, but not in significant ways because most of our production is  
using an internal version of Hadoop 20, which diverges from Hadoop  
trunk (where Mumak resides). So the project is certainly "live" but  
not very "active".

I guess you could look at it this way: would Mumak be a good base to  
help you accelerate what you plan to work on? If the answer is yes,  
take it and enhance it. Just like any open source projects, there is  
no particular owner of it. The more people embrace it and contribute  
to it, the more likely the project will be successful.

Another note I should say is that before you invest in significant  
amount of time in implementing something, you should create a jira  
ticket first, and discuss solutions with the community (sometimes even  
post partial patches) along the way. Sometimes your solution may not  
be aligned with the general design principle of the whole project, or  
some assumptions you make may no longer hold in future versions. Keep  
the community involved helps avoid such costly mistakes.

Hope this helps,
