Subject Re: [DISCUSS] HBase as Apache top-level project?

Hi Stack,

I think the proposal sounds reasonable. 

HBase is an integrated optional part of a Hadoop stack more
than a standalone component, but other ASF TLPs build on top
of other projects. I suppose HDFS and ZK are going to be TLPs
at some point also, is that true? Leaving Hadoop as just the
MR framework?

Anyway, what I like is HBase will stand on its own merits. 

What are the risks of being a TLP?
