Folks over at HBase would be interested in helping out.
What does a mentor have to do? I poked around the icfoss link but didn't
see list of duties (I've been know to be certified blind on occasion).
I am not up on the malleability of hdfs RPC; is it just a matter of adding
the trace info to a pb header record or would it require more (Sanjay was
saying something recently off-list that trace id is imminent -- but I've
not done the digging)?
