Bigtop is kind of different from most Apache projects in that we provide things useful for other Apache projects.
+1 on the Peter's comment about the value-add provided by Bigtop. What often-times is misunderstood is how much of a product success depends on its ease of use and flawless integration. Now imagine every IT department employing a bunch of people with deep knowledge into all of the stack's components. And all that just in order to support some small analytics' team. Cost, time, complexity - all that is solved here ;)
