I do not believe that different organizations should release their own
versions of Hadoop posing as Apache releases.  If folks wish to release
their own versions, then they should call them something else and
release them themselves.  The Apache Hadoop project should create
releases collaboratively, through an open process.  The standard means
is to start a branch from trunk or a prior release and propose patches
to that branch, one-by-one.  This candidate diverged sufficiently from
this pattern that, for me, it doesn't qualify as a community release.
