The existing contributor base is largely disjoint from the Hadoop 
contributor base, and they expect that to mostly remain the case. 
Nigel, Owen & I, Hadoop committers, will mostly just help the Pig crew 
out with Apache ways, and don't expect to become significant 
contributors to Pig.  Pig builds on Hadoop, and the communities may 
overlap a bit, but, to the primary folks involved, it feels like a 
separate community and they'd prefer to aim for a TLP.
