We can definitely build them, but I'm not sure if our legal dep would allow us to distribute
3rd party libs (even though we're open source as well)... 

If bigtop packages support the latest distros, and provide 2.x GA then the above discussion
goes away =) 
I'll take a look at bigtop again, thanks for your help.  

Thanks, Rodrigo.

I see. I guess the question I have for you then is -- any reason you guys can't just rebuild
the native bits for exact set of Linux distros you care about?
Do you find it difficult, or does it not fit your deployment pipeline?

The Bigtop 0.7.0 release has quite a wide support of Linux distros:
If you have something in mind that's missing -- please do let us know (on dev@bigtop.apache.org).

As for the Hadoop -- Bigtop 0.7.0 went out supporting Hadoop 2.0.6 and Bigtop 0.8.0 is going
to have the latest version of Hadoop 2 GA.
