Subject Hadoop sub-project spin outs...
Date Thu, 18 Mar 2010 20:48:04 GMT
As you may have seen on the various dev lists, some of the Hadoop sub- 
projects such as HBase and Avro have started discussions on their dev  
lists about becoming top level Apache projects. This is largely  
motivated by the Apache board's continued warnings to Hadoop and  
Lucene against becoming an umbrella project. (Umbrella projects are  
projects that are meta-projects where the development communities and  
releases of the sub-projects are largely disjoint.) I've heard some  
questions about whether if sub-project X becomes a TLP it will be  
included in events like Hadoop Summit, Hadoop World, etc. For Hadoop  
Summit and the Bay Area Hadoop User Group meetings, which Yahoo  
organizes, a change in to a TLP won't change anything. I don't have  
any reason to believe the other meetings will behave differently.
