Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move common, hdfs, mapreduce contrib components to apache-extras.org or elsewhere
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2011 06:35:25 GMT
Hi Chris,

You use the word 'project' over and over.  These contrib modules are not Apache projects.
 They are source code directories within the various Hadoop subprojects. Reading thru attic.apache.org,
I don't see how it directly relates.  Surely not every 'svn remove <dir>' should be
replaced with a move to attic.apache.org.

the project -- move it to the "real" Apache Attic, via a board resolution (you could do a
single board resolution from the Hadoop PMC to the Apache Board containing the set of projects
to Attic).

will point to the last SVN revision of the contrib.  I will also start a Related Projects
wiki (if we don't already have one) with pointers to the contrib modules that folks have volunteered
to keep developing elsewhere.

folks I've talked with agree that these contrib components would be better served by being
pulled out of Hadoop and hosted elsewhere. The new apache-extras code hosting site seems like
a natural *default* location for migrating these contrib projects.  Perhaps some should graduate
from contrib to src (ie from contrib to core of the project they're included in).  If folks
agree, we'll need to come up with a mapping of contrib component to it's final destination
and file a jira.
