Start with 0.9, lets maintain a MAINTAINERS.txt file which has component, maintainer names.
Everybody please add entries here for components in bigtop that you will maintain.
I think we Are we in agreement that,
- Components that ARE NOT in this file, can be dropped without much debate. No point in releasing something that is maintained by pure chance of randomly someone deciding to add a patch.
- Components that ARE added in this file will, for obvious reasons, be central to the architecture of the bigtop distribution.
Componets are : YARN, HBASE, SPARK, HIVE, PIG, MAHOUT, FLUME, (many others ...) folks please chime in on what you can maintain in the comments below, and I'll craft the file.
