Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-718) Update wiki for component requirements
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 10:23:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BIGTOP-718?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13465507#comment-13465507
] 

Tom White commented on BIGTOP-718:
----------------------------------

The board resolution for graduation that was passed at the last board meeting states that
the scope of Bigtop covers "integration, packaging, deployment and validation of a big data
management software distribution based on Apache Hadoop". That phrase should be used in the
Bigtop documentation.

> 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).
