[VOTE] HBase as TLP?
Please vote as to whether you think HBase should become a top-level
Apache project.

I've included below a draft board resolution.  It lists all current
active HBase committers as initial members of the project management
committee (PMC) and myself, Michael Stack, as the initial chair.

Do the good people of Hadoop support sending this request on to the Hadoop PMC?
