A couple of times a year, the Apache HBase PMC has to submit a report
to the Apache Board. Until now, the report was just worked out on the
private@hbase mailing list and then submitted. Let me start cc'ing
the dev list on what we've sent the board (after all its your
project). If there are ever any 'sensitive' topics discussed, I'll
just redact from what I post here. Here is what I just sent ahead of
the Apache Board meeting next week.
HBase is a distributed column-oriented database built on top of Hadoop
Common and Hadoop HDFS

Notes and pointers to talks posted here .
After discussion up on the dev list, we introduced the notion of an
'owner' role. "Owners are volunteers who are (usually, but not necessarily)
expert in a component domain and may have an agenda on how they think
their HBase component should evolve." Owners will try and review patches
that fall within their domain and if an agenda will publish it. See
 for more.
