Re: Including Apache Knox in BigTop
Hi Kevin!

Yes, filing an umbrella JIRA is a good place to start. An obvious two subjiras
that I would recommend filing right away are:
   * packaging subjira
   * deployment subjira (providing puppet code)
   * testing subjira (implementing iTest tests)

I can personally help with the puppet code and answer any kind of
questions on the other two.

Also, if on an umbrella JIRA you can explain all the integration
points between Knox and the rest of the Bigtop stack -- that'll
be very much appreciated.
