  There are also a few other features a table management service should provide, such as notification
of when data arrives.

component. There is good amount of interest in such a service expressed from Yahoo!, Facebook,
LinkedIn, and, others. We are therefore proposing to place Howl in the Apache incubator and
to build an open source community around it.

  == Rationale ==
@@ -31, +31 @@

  Our intent with this incubator proposal is to start building a diverse developer community
around Howl following the Apache meritocracy model. We have wanted to make the project open
source and encourage contributors from multiple organizations from the start. We plan to provide
plenty of support to new developers and to quickly recruit those who make solid contributions
to committer status. 
  
  === Community ===
- Howl is currently being used by developers at Yahoo! and there has been an expressed interest
from LinkedIn and Facebook. Yahoo! also plans to deploy the current version of Howl in production
soon. We hope to extend the user and developer base further in the future. The current developers
and users are all interested in building a solid open source community around Howl.

  === Core Developers ===
  Howl is currently being developed by four engineers from Yahoo! - Devaraj Das, Ashutosh
Chauhan, Sushanth Sowmyan, and Mac Yang. All the engineers have deep expertise in Hadoop and
the Hadoop Ecosystem in general.

  == Known Risks ==
  === Orphaned Products ===
- The core developers plan to work full time on the project. There is very little risk of
Howl getting orphaned since large companies like Yahoo! are planning to deploy this in their
production Hadoop clusters. We believe we can build an active developer community around Howl
(companies like Facebook and LinkedIn have also expressed interest).

  === Inexperience with Open Source ===
  All of the core developers are active users and followers of open source. Devaraj Das is
an Apache Hadoop committer and Apache Hadoop PMC member, and has experience with the Apache
infrastructure and development process. Ashutosh Chauhan is an Apache Pig committer and Apache
Pig PMC member.  Sushanth Sowmyan and Mac Yang made contributions to the Apache Hive and the
Apache Chukwa projects.
  
  === Homogeneous Developers ===
- The current core developers are all from Yahoo! However, we hope to establish a developer
community that includes contributors from several corporations, and we are starting to work
towards this with Facebook and LinkedIn.

  === Reliance on Salaried Developers ===
  Currently, the developers are paid to do work on Howl. However, once the project has a community
built around it, we expect to get committers and developers from outside the current core
developers. Companies like Yahoo! are invested in Howl being a solution to the data management
problem in Hadoop clusters, and that is not likely to change.
