Subject Re: Apache Hadoop or CDH?
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2011 06:52:06 GMT
Hey Owen,

Bigtop's scope is Apache releases. Roman pasted the description of
DISTRO-54 into BIGTOP-20 verbatim, the intent was not to support CDH
in Bigtop. Since the current Bigtop source is based on CDH the same
bug applies which is why he's created the jira. I updated the
description to be more clear.

which is what comes from Apache.

fork of Hadoop seems wrong.
