Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-718) Update wiki for component requirements
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 04:19:08 GMT


Eli Collins commented on BIGTOP-718:

Thanks for filing Sean. Suggestions:

# A component be part of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem (per your comment about "Big Data" we
need to define that better but I'd start with integrates with and/or is powered by Apache
# A requirement that all components are added to trunk before release branches. We articulate
something similar in Hadoop (see, in general it's good
to be trunk first so different Bigtop releases don't have inconsistent components
# A requirement that new components work with *all* of the existing components before they
are included in a release. New additions can bake in trunk or a feature branch but we shouldn't
release them until they work with the rest of the stack (for the other parts of the stack
they interact with).
# I'd clarify that the projects dependencies need to be ASFv2 compatible (which is implied
but better to be clear)
# I'd consider making integration testing a hard requirement

I agree that we should put this info prominently on the project homepage (version controlled
text, parts of the generated docs). How about removing it from the wiki at the same time so
we don't maintain two copies?

I'd also update the docs to be explicit that Bigtop is about the integration of the Apache
Hadoop ecosystem, not just the package and test development (which are parts of the overall
integration effort).

> I think some updates are in order for this Wiki page in order to more accurately reflect
the goals of the project:
> For starters, it should have a more prominent link on the Wiki and a summary on the project
home page. Not only is it going to be an increasingly common question, but it's an important
part of defining what "Bigtop" is really all about. I know when I first started on the project
it was the first thing I looked for.
> Second, we say projects have to be "Big Data"-related. Judging by other documents* and
existing discussions regarding new components, it seems like we really mean to say "Hadoop"-related,
and I think the extra focus would be good (having said that, I do think of Spark as Hadoop-related).
