- (project add text here)
+ A tool for efficiently transferring bulk data between Apache Hadoop and structured datastores
such as relational databases. 
+ Sqoop was accepted into Apache Incubator on June 11, 2011. Status information is available
at [].
+ Progress since last report:
+  * Sqoop PPMC voted in Kathleen Ting as a new committer.
+  * Sqoop PPMC voted in Jarek Jarcec Checho (Jarsolav Cecho) as PPMC member.
+  * Released Sqoop version 1.4.1-incubating, with support for Apache Hadoop versions 0.20,
0.23 and 1.0.
+  * Sqoop started it's graduation process on February 19th, 2012.
+ Progress on graduation:
+  * Community Vote: PASSED. Vote (1), Result (2)
+  * Incubator PMC Vote: PASSED. Vote (3), Result (4)
+  * During IPMC vote a concern was raised that Sqoop contains deprecated Java source in com.cloudera.sqoop
namespace which need be removed before graduation.
+  * Sqoop dev expressed that this code was:
+   * Marked deprecated and retained solely for backward compatibility.
+   * That there was a concrete plan to completely remove it by next major revision, work
for which had already started.
+   * That it was not motivated by Cloudera's corporate interests.
+  * The Incubator PMC and Sqoop community reached consensus that:
+   * Sqoop was within it's right to retain Java source code in com.cloudera.sqoop namespace
to provide backwards compatibility. 
+   * And, that it was for the benefit of Sqoop community.
+   * And, that there is no such policy in ASF that Incubator can enforce on any Incubating
+   * And, that if anyone feels that this should be a policy, they must establish it via the
proper channel of providing the problem statement, impact of the problem, and solution to
the board for consideration.
+  * The draft board resolution that was voted on by IPMC has been submitted to the board
for consideration in it's next meeting scheduled for March 21, 2012.
