Subject Re: List of projects others might want to work on

7. Support for TS in Mutation object to allow atomic row mutations
with different timestamps (needed for atomic clone, which is needed
for simplest possible rowkey alter ability)
8. Single jar with simplest possible hadoop/hbase/rest/thrift ready to
run on common architectures (for people who want to just try it out -
the 10 minute test)
9. phpHbaseAdmin - like phpMyAdmin, but for hbase ;) (requires the
ability to retrieve timestamp data from cells - rumored to be
available in 0.2)
10. APT packages for hbase/hadoop (apt-get install hbase)
11. Lucene/bloom filter layer on top of put/get/delete to allow
constantly updated search indexes (admittedly, a wild idea)
