      Description

      A "git"-style shell script that allows a single point of entry to manage and monitor any of the bigtop upstream systems.
      Something like mvn or git command. This will introduce something to
      learn at first but it adds value to start/stop/access help for all systems in
      a consistent way. It can also shield some changes that happens with
      upstream systems. Instead of dealing with some many <XXX>_HOME, we can have one BIGTOP_HOME environment variable.

      Proposed on bigtop email lists, and presented the attached slides during the hackathon.

          Per Roman's suggestion, we can introduce /etc/bigtoprc or similar script to set the necessary environment variables for upstream systems.
