FAQ
Hi all,
My team is actively involve in porting Hadoop 1.0.x to IBM POWER
architecture, that of course includes building
Hadoop 1.0 using IBM JAVA 6. So to start I have following questions:
1) How hadoop-common supports multi architecture builds?
If it doesn't , we have a proposal, what is the process to submit a
proposal?
2) What is the process to become a contributor?
3) When is the next hadoop conference?


Best Regards

    There are kind of two ways to submit a proposal.

    1 - send an e-mail here with the proposal.
    2 - file a JIRA and attach your proposal to it.

    Usually it is a combination of the two. You start a conversation on the mailing list, and then at some point file a JIRA to track the work and capture the discussion.

    To become a contributor, from the perspective of apache, all you have to do is to submit a patch and grant the copyright to apache for submission. Your company may have more guidelines/legal requirements and you probably want to check with them. See the wiki http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToContribute for more details.

    There are several conferences coming up. Hadoop Summit is the next big one that I know of http://hadoopsummit.org/

    As far as the build system is concerned are you interested in the 1.0 line that uses ant or the 0.23/trunk that uses maven?

    Always glad to see more people wanting to make Hadoop better.

    To become a contributor, an individual must fax in the ICLA (Individual
    Contributor License Agreement) which can be found at
    http://www.apache.org/licenses/icla.txt . When your name shows up on the
    web page at http://people.apache.org/committer-index.html#unlistedclas then
    your ICLA has been registered, and you can have your name added to the
    appropriate Jira projects so you can submit patches.

    IBM is a Gold Sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation, so they have
    already signed the CCLA (Corporate Contributor License Agreement), but each
    individual contributor must also sign the ICLA.

    Best regards,
