Subject Re: [VOTE] Release for Bigtop version 0.1.0-incubating RC2
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2011 20:47:46 GMT
imho this is a non issue for this release because:
* A discussion has just started on bigtop-dev mailing list about that
* We don't have any build slaves yet, so no convenience artifacts built
from Apache. So no overlap or conflict can happen today
* This release is focused on getting the Apache release process right 
And we intend to release often. So we can resolve that issue as soon as
the discussion around that matter is resolved

But what is wrong with the overlap? These are just non-mutually
exclusive separate efforts. And both are based on the very same
unpatched bits.
Whether the artifact come from projects themselves or BigTop, they are
installed as a conscious decision by a user. So if there is an overlap
this would happen only as the result of explicit actions made by a user
(ex: installing both repository at the same time).
They would also be aware of using BigTop artifacts because repository
should make an explicit mention about that (and would also very likely
named something like "BigTop-<BigTop_version>")
