A like minded group meeting together to discuss and solve common

Sure. It's an ecosystem wide effort centered around Hadoop Common. We can
produce something more likely to be taken up by projects like Hive if we
include them and their considerations at the outset. If we have a common
public security list, we can go evangelize it to projects like Hive and
hopefully we can get active participation from someone in their community.
Likewise with Pig, HBase, Avro, ZooKeeper, Flume, Sqoop, and so on.
