Totally agree with most of what Sean said, just wanted to give an
alternate take on the "maintainers" thing

My perception of that situation is that the Apache process is actively
antagonistic towards factoring out responsibility for particular parts
of the code into a hierarchy.  I think if Spark was under a different
open source model, with otherwise exactly the same committers, that
attempt at identifying maintainers would have worked out differently.
