Hive seems a distinct developer community from Hadoop and thus deserves
to be a separate project. It has made releases and appears to have met
the requirements expected of a TLP. 3+ organizations are represented on
its PMC, so while diversity is a concern, there seems to be a will to
address this going forward, so I feel a detour through the Incubator is

We anticipate that we will have a more diversified base by the end of the year modulo contributions from developers at these entities - and there are a fair bit in the pipeline.
