      Dumbo (a project that aims to make Hadoop Streaming as easy as possible) added to contrib.


      Originally, Dumbo was a simple Python module developed at to make writing and running Hadoop Streaming programs very easy, but now it also consists of some (up till now unreleased) helper code in Java (although it can still be used without the Java code). We propose to add Dumbo to "src/contrib" such that the Java classes get build/installed together with the rest of Hadoop, and the Python module can be installed separately at will. A tar.gz of the directory that would have to be added to "src/contrib" is available at

      and more info about Dumbo can be found here:

      For some of the more advanced features of Dumbo (in particular the ones for which the Java classes are needed) there is no public documentation yet, but we could easily fill that gap by moving some of the internal documentation to the Hadoop wiki.
