- All software development projects that are community based (that is, accepting of outside
contributions) face a common QA problem for vetting in coming contributions. Hadoop is fortunate
enough to be sufficiently popular that the weight of the problem drove tool development (i.e.
test-patch). That tool is generalizable enough that a bunch of other TLPs have adopted their
own forks. Unfortunately, in most projects this kind of QA work is an enabler rather than
a primary concern, so often the tooling is worked on ad-hoc and improvements are rarely shared
across

across
  projects. Since the tooling itself is never a primary concern, any artifacts made are rarely
reused outside of ASF projects. Having
  a solid set of build tools that are customizable to fit the norms of different software
communities is a bunch of work. Making it work well in both the context of automated test
systems like Jenkins and for individual developers is even more work. By focusing these efforts
in the Yetus project, we can gain some additional reuse and network effects across both ASF
projects and development projects that might adopt us outside of the foundation.
