Subject [VOTE] Sponsoring Howl as an Apache Incubator project
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2011 21:18:32 GMT
Howl is a table management system built to provide metadata and  
storage management across data processing tools in Hadoop (Pig, Hive,  
MapReduce, ...).  You can learn more details at http://wiki.apache.org/pig/Howl 
.  For the last six months the code has been hosted at github.  The  
Howl team would like to move the project into the Apache Incubator.   
You can see the proposal for the project at http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/HowlProposal


In order to be accepted as an Incubator project Howl needs a  
Sponsoring project.  I propose that we, the Pig project, sponsor  
Howl.  By sponsoring Howl we are saying that we believe it is a good  
fit for the ASF and that we will assist the Howl project to succeed.   
You can read full details of sponsoring a project at http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Roles_and_Responsibilities.html#Sponsor


Our bylaws don't explicitly cover such a vote, but I think lazy  
majority should be reasonable.  All votes are welcome, PMC member  
votes will be binding.

Clearly I'm +1.
