Subject [Incubator Wiki] Trivial Update of "BigtopProposal" by TomWhite2
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2011 05:13:19 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "BigtopProposal" page has been changed by TomWhite2:

  == Relationships with Other Apache Products ==
  Bigtop depends upon other Apache Projects including Apache Hadoop, Apache HBase, Apache
Hive, Apache Pig, Apache Zookeeper, Apache Thrift, Apache Avro, Apache Whirr. The build system
uses Apache Ant and Apache Maven.
- One consequence of a unified packaging and release process for the "Apache Hadoop stack"
is that it will encourage closer co-operation between the related Apache projects, and also
create pressure for synchronized releases of the artifacts. This is not necessarily a bad
thing -the issues with getting a stable append operation into the HDFS filesystem has created
problems for the HBase team, problems that synchronized releases would fix. However, it will
require the individual projects to care about their dependent projects, and to work together
on a more synchronous schedule for project releases. While ultimately this will be beneficial,
it may be problematic at first, and will require engagement from committers in the specific
Apache projects to address compatibility problems, and from the PMCs for coordinated releases.

  == An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==
