I feel this proposal is taking us in the wrong direction.

Apache Board has encouraged us to move to TLPs. We did follow through partially with Pig,
Hive, HBase. Chris M, in the other thread, has made good arguments, drawing from the larger
apache experience,  on why the remaining hadoop sub projects should follow the Apache way
and move to TLPs.  The communities for HDFS and MR are quite distinct when you examine the
contributions of each committer or who participates in design discussions for each of the

I would like to see a discussion on a plan to get us to TLPs.
Hence my vote is -1;   lets have the TLP discussion first because the vote on the proposal
in this thread is taking taking us in the opposite direction.
