Re: [DISCUSS] Spin out MR, HDFS and YARN as their own TLPs and disband Hadoop umbrella project

I'd be fascinated to hear more from folks who have lead other projects at Apache how Hadoop's (and Lucene's, same DNA) committer management process compares and some good and bad lessons learned from those projects.  Chris M has mentioned his experience from other projects.  Can others comment?

Many projects do seem to have Emeriti lists / processes.  How do people feel about that?

How does the committer list size of Hadoop compare to other major Apache projects?

Other lessons learned?
