Good point. As I said, my personal preference is different; but if you feel strongly I'm happy to get to consensus and preempt a long discussion.

So, here is the list of folks who have either contributed or reviewed-and-committed (a handful of) YARN patches in the last 18 months:

* Alejandro Abdelnur
* Arun C. Murthy
* Chris Douglas
* Devaraj Das
* Hitesh Shah
* Jonathan Eagles
* Luke Lu
* Mahadev Konar
* Robert Evans
* Siddharth Seth
* Sharad Agarwal
* Thomas Graves
* Tom White
* Vinod Kumar V

Hope that it reasonable and we can get back to our caves to crank out code. *smile*
