Subject [jira] [Created] (BIGTOP-718) Update wiki for component requirements
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 00:21:07 GMT
Sean Mackrory created BIGTOP-718:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Update wiki for component requirements
                 Key: BIGTOP-718
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BIGTOP-718
             Project: Bigtop
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sean Mackrory
            Assignee: Sean Mackrory


I think some updates are in order for this Wiki page in order to more accurately reflect the
goals of the project: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/BIGTOP/Requirement+for+adding+a+new+component+to+Bigtop+distribution.

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).
