  ''Diversity of developer community.'' The initial code base for Tashi was developed by a
single research programmer, Michael Ryan, at Intel Research Pittsburgh. An important reason
for putting Tashi in the incubator is to expand the set of developers to include programmers
from Carnegie Mellon and Yahoo, initially, and later, hopefully, from other groups such as
Usher at UCSD, cluster-on-demand from Duke University, and the RAD Lab at Berkeley.
  
- ''Relationship to other Apache projects.'' There are no Apache projects such as Tashi that

focus on systems support for cloud computing. However, the Tashi project is closely related
to Hadoop/HDFS. The VM-based provisioning of Tashi will subsume the now 
  deprecated sub-clustering functionality of Hadoop-on-demand. The Tashi prototype uses HDFS
to host the cluster boot images. Also, we expect that many Tashi logical clusters will run
Hadoop jobs.
  
  ''Reasons that Tashi is an ASF project.'' There are three main reasons for developing Tashi
through Apache rather than, say, Source``Forge. (1) Our Yahoo partner has had a very positive
experience with the Hadoop project. (2) We recognize the need to build a strong developer
community, and Apache is centered around building such communities. (3) The ASF also offers
substantial legal oversight that makes it attractive for cross-organizational collaborative
efforts such as Tashi.  With Source``Forge, for example, you have few guarantee about the
title of the code.  Thus, people can easily post code they don't own, and/or change the license
terms of other open source code that they include in their projects.  So users of code from
Source``Forge must be wary.  On the other hand, Apache vets all contributions, keeping signed
documents from every committer on file, etc.
