1) regarding smoke tests and backwards compatibility:
Not sure what components of bigtop your referring to , but FYI the smoke
tests on head, or at least a solid subset of them, work enough to test a
cluster against mahout, mapreduce, sqoop on hadoop 1.x .
- For pig, hive, we are just running shell scripts in the test-execution
- for mahout, we run all tests but BayesNewsgroupClassifier
- for mapreduce, we run the terasort/teragen, wordcount, grep, and sleep
2) like sean sais.. I assume that the bigtop head dudes would agree with me
that, even though alot of bigtop work is driven by vendor needs, but since
its an apache project, those of us in the broader community can continue
adding patches to it to support our needs as long as they are synergistic
with the overall project goals ; do feel free to ping me or create a jira
for 1.x wish lists maybe i might share some of those with you and maybe
could even help on a patch
