After some cleanup from Noirin and Shane, I think we've got a really good base. I'd like a
vote to approve the content (at the current revision 12) and put the content on our web site.

I'd like to make another suggestion. Currently we call two types of
things powered by Apache Hadoop:

1. Something that runs on Hadoop (eg HBase or Karmasphere)
2. Something that includes Hadoop artifacts/source code

Shouldn't we distinguish between these two, such that the 2nd is not
powered by Hadoop? Eg tc server is not powered by Apache Tomcat right?

Apologies for having discussion on a vote thread but this is the first
time I've seen the current revision and it seems reasonable to have an
opportunity to discuss a specific revision before voting on it.
