Yes, HBase is the only model citizen here. As for the rest of component
I really would like to figure out what the plan is. Given that the patches
are not big, is there any way Pig and Hive guys can be convinced
to spin a maintenance release? I can certainly help with the logistics.
Right now, Bigtop is at a point where an entire stack based on Hadoop
.22 can be deployed (via puppet) as a single step. That helps a great
deal in validating the release. The problem is, that give Bigtop policies
of not releasing with custom patches (we only package straight Apache
releases) it would be a shame not to have.22 stack available for a single

I can help with that. I was playing with the .22 build assembly yesterday
and it seems that it shouldn't be a problem. I can also test it as a tarball
once it is assembled.
