There's a lot of blocks already in place with the Instamo stuff.
I would not say the blocks are in place at this point in time. Maybe after ACCUMULO-1378 is complete, instamo could leverage that work. When a lot of the tickets under ACCUMULO-1386 are complete and its easy to run a single node accumulo, how do we package that and make it available to users? Keep in mind that users will want to stop and start this instance, its not transient. Users will also want to configure it. Maybe maven is a way to do this, I am not really sure at this point. Seems like it would be something different than instamo, maybe a maven plugin for managing a single node accumulo instance. Will this work w/ native maps? Another option is creating a tarball, rpm, and deb. I think it would be useful to develop a list of the pros and cons of each approach. I agree w/ David Medinets we do want to be cognizant of the maintenance tail of whatever we create. We will have to continue to support in 1.7, etc.
