Re: [DISCUSS] move hedwig/bookkeeper to subproject
I'm sorry for not replying before. I didn't feel that the message was  
for me, since it should be pretty obvious that I'm interested in those  
projects. Here are some thoughts, though:

- It would be really nice to have committers for bookkeeper/hedwig;
- It would be really nice to have independent releases for bookkeeper/
- It sounds like bookkeeper and hedwig don't always go together, and  
hdfs is an instance in which it happens. But, hedwig builds on top of  
bookkeeper (and other components), so using hedwig implies using  
bookkeeper. Consequently, if we choose only one to be a main project,  
perhaps bookkeeper would be a better choice;
- I don't think we have anyone who could be a project lead for these  
projects right now, so it could be a problem to split up at this  
point. For this reason, a zookeeper subproject sounds like a better  
option compared to incubator, unless we are able to find a project lead.
