RE: Proposal to create a branch for contrib project Zebra
Its good to know that Raghu Angadi is a PMC member and that he has
committer rights to all subprojects. That's besides the point.

The example of a branch for multi-query is not quite right. Multi-query
was part of the pig development efforts and not a contrib project.

Raghu is suggesting that he will be the first of many more committers.
If that's the case then Zebra is clearly better off being a subproject
under Hadoop. That way, Raghu need to ask for permission and the Pig
team need not deal with committers for a contrib project.

Tomorrow, there will be requests from other contrib projects for similar
reasons. I don't see this as a good enough reason to grant committer
rights to contrib projects.

Raghu is PMC member and as such already has committer rights to all
subprojects. So we are not breaking any new grounds here. The reasoning
is the same as for creating branches for Pig multiquery work that we did
in Pig.

Is there any precedence for such proposals? I am not comfortable with
extending committer access to contrib teams. I would suggest that Zebra
be made a sub-project of Hadoop and have a life of its own.

Thanks to the PIG team, The first version of contrib project Zebra
(PIG-833) is committed to PIG trunk.

In short, Zebra is a table storage layer built for use in PIG and other
Hadoop applications.

While we are stabilizing current version V1 in the trunk, we plan to add

more new features to it. We would like to create an svn branch for the
new features. We will be responsible for managing zebra in PIG trunk and

in the new branch. We will merge the branch when it is ready. We expect
the changes to affect only 'contrib/zebra' directory.

As a regular contributor to Hadoop, I will be the initial committer for
Zebra. As more patches are contributed by other Zebra developers, there
might be more commiters added through normal Hadoop/Apache procedure.

I would like to create a branch called 'zebra-v2' with approval from PIG

team.

Thanks,
Raghu.
