Fundamentally, priorities are set by those that do the work.  As a 
volunteer organization, we can't assign tasks.  Folks must volunteer to 
do the work.  Y! has volunteered more than others on Hadoop, but that 
doesn't mean that anyone sets Y!'s priorities but Y!.

The surest way to make things happen here is to do them yourself.  If 
you're not qualified, then you can either: become qualified; help in 
other areas, where you are qualified, and hope this frees up folks to 
work on what you want; or, you can politely express your interest and 
patiently wait.

That said, we all benefit from knowing what features others want.  If a 
vast number of people are interested in a feature, then that indicates 
that the imolementation of that feature might bring new users.  And new 
users typically bring new developers, and new developers make the 
project stronger.  So please, don't hesitate to lodge feature requests 
and to vote for existing feature requests, but it would be a mistake to 
expect someone else to implement features on your schedule.
