Subject Re: Discussion: Move contribs out of hbase?

What about replication? I think it is a core feature but the reason we
wanted to put it first in contrib was because of stability issues it could
generate. 2 other options:

- github, means no visibility from hbase and more steps to get it
- directly into core, with a configuration variable that works the same way
as dfs.append.enable
