          Bigtop is a project for the development of a framework for packaging,
          testing and maintaining Apache BigData and FastData software stacks.

          The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the packaging,
          interoperability testing of Hadoop and other data-processing components,
          cluster deployment and configuration management. This includes tools for
          testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, upgrade, etc.)
          developed by a community with a focus on the system as a whole, rather than
          individual projects.

          Bigtop supports Debian/Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, SUSE, and many others.

          All open-source and commercial distributions of Hadoop are based on the Bigtop
          framework.

          IMO need to add openSUSE and RHEL for completeness, but that I understand could be nit-picking

          Sorry, just saw this, getting caught up on bigtop stuff as prep for Scale conference is getting underway. Since late to the party some stuff to consider for future passes below. Current content seems little wordy/repetitive. Also if goal of 0.9/1.0 and beyond is to start making bigtop non hadoop/hdfs focused and more general data/data-science should start to push the content in that direction:

          ----------------------

          Bigtop is an Apache Foundation project for Infrastructure Engineers and Data Scientists looking for comprehensive packaging, testing, and configuration of the leading open source big data components. Bigtop supports a wide range of components/projects including, but not limited to: (main component here, not exhaustive list and all small ones)

          Bigtop components power the leading Hadoop distros and support many Operating Systems, including Debian/Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, and SUSE.

          Bigtop includes tools and a framework for testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, etc.) for both initial deployments as well as upgrade scenarios for the entire data platform, not just the individual components.
          (NOTE: seems we could event get rid of this section below the intro, seems repetitive to talk about packaging again right after intro)
