I don't think this question has come up on this thread yet, so here it is:
what are our thinking about sponsorship? Right now we have two separate
sponsorship buckets: Bigdata and Core. Do we plan to keep it that way?

Suppose there's somebody interested in sponsoring Apache XXX (where
XXX != Bigdata). Do we make them sponsor Core for now?
