Subject Re: RTC vs CTR (was: Concerning Sentry...)

Yes, it would be good to take a survey.  Interestingly, I wasn’t aware that ANY Apache projects
used RTC until I became involved with a project in the Hadoop ecosystem, which seems to align
with Tood’s statement since all the projects he is listed as being involved in are part
of that.  In fact, when I was mentoring the project I am familiar with I asked during incubation
why they wanted to use RTC and was told that it was because that is the way all Hadoop related
projects worked. Since most of the committers were paid to work on the project by their employer
I also got the feeling that it aligned with that.
