Re: [VOTE] Hadoop-1.0.0 release candidate 2
Yes, I agree that we, the whole Hadoop development community, need to help
each other get the various components working together, and keep them
mutually compatible as each continues to grow and evolve.  I think BigTop
is providing a valuable service in this area, by providing an official
Apache place for the components to be tested together.
