It is clear from the comments on this thread that the move to split  
HDFS and Map-Reduce into separate projects has been a mixed bag -  
maybe a net negative.

It has caused issues we as a community haven't dealt well with.

So, we need to make a decision - do we stick the course, get through  
the painful process and emerge stronger or do we take a step back and  
regress a decision we made back then? The current proposal to merge  
committer lists seems like a regression.
