Frankly, I'm not sure right now - things change frequently in the incubator. I've seen open-enrollment
encouraged and discouraged - sometimes even in the same Incubator project! *smile*

OTOH, the reason I'm interested, particularly in Drill, is simple:
# Unlike several other Incubator proposals I've seen, there is no existing body of code here.
If there was I'd be more hesitant to ask. This isn't meant to be pejorative, but merely a
statement of fact.
# I've contributed to Apache Hadoop since day one (over 6 yrs now) and I feel like my expertise,
particularly in MapReduce, would be very useful to Drill - again, particularly given it's
nascent stage. (Likewise with someone like Owen who asked to be included too.)
