This project is currently a member of the Apache Incubator, so check back for updates, or come join us dev@hdt.incubator.apache.org.


Apache Hadoop Development Tools is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation(ASF) sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC.Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
