Hue is Apache licensed, so that isn't an issue. The issue is that
Bigtop is planning on distributing non-Apache software for the primary
purpose of providing it to their users. It seems to me pretty
fundamental that Apache projects should only distribute Apache
software except as a dependency. Bigtop is only including Hue to
provide it to their users with no dependency at all.

It would be great if Cloudera were to contribute Hue to Apache. Unless
they do, I really don't think it is appropriate for us to distribute
standalone binary packages of their project from Apache's servers.
