As Eric mentioned, we have several person years worth of development  
to contribute to Apache. Arun has started that process by creating the  
branch-0.20-security branch. I plan on pushing the individual patches  
to branch-0.20-security-patches and then when it is identical with  
Arun's branch, I'll rename mine to branch-0.20-security.

I also plan to start pushing the hadoop-future work into a branch  
called yahoo-merge(?)  as individual commits from our internal git  
repository. The goal of creating the branch is to enable faster review  
and discussion. These patches will be individually run through the  
jira, review, and commit process to be added to trunk.
