Subject Re: [VOTE] introduce Python as build-time and run-time dependency for Hadoop and throughout Hadoop stack
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2012 16:45:56 GMT

0, +1, -1 (non-binding)

Also, it feels like maybe the discussion should have been kept open a little longer, thanksgiving
holidays last week meant that people may have missed it.

Cheers,
Adam
