Committers, perhaps we should start vetting these (another one was the node.js connector that was posted in the last few days) and posting them up under the contrib section. I'm can spend some time to verify the functionality, make sure they are adequately documented, push it to the accumulo github and under the contrib section.

Would we be better off linking to them from the main page?
For one, we don't know that Anagha wants their code moved from github into a repo controlled by our PMC.
As a practical matter for non-committers, they'd have to start going through our review. Though I believe we could grant commit rights to just the repo their project would be in, I don't know that this would add much practical value over maintaining the code in its current location. : http://accumulo.apache.org/contrib.html On Fri, Feb 28, 2014 at 1:12 PM, Arshak Navruzyan <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
I'm concerned that letting new users go hunting for contribs on their own gives (which may or may not work, may or may not be documented) gives the Accumulo project a little bit of an incomplete feeling. Obviously it's not possible to take on the responsibility to moderate every possible contribution but some basic/obvious ones would be helpful.

I definitely agree on the importance of a curated set of related outside projects. I'd much rather we not have links that answer the question "How do I search github for Accumulo projects?" since that doesn't really answer the question of "What are Accumulo related projects I should care about?"
Maybe we shouldn't continue to separate "contrib projects" in Accumulo and "ecosystem projects" that are hosted and run elsewhere to the extent we currently do. If I'm looking for examples of things that leverage Accumulo I probably don't want to look at two different places on our website. Maybe we could list the Accumulo hosted contribs and the external projects on an ecosystem page? "Powered by Accumulo" maybe?
