Hello Hive community. It is time for HCatalog to graduate from the ApacheIncubator. Given the heavy dependence of HCatalog on Hive the HCatalogcommunity agreed it made sense to explore graduating from the Incubator tobecome a subproject of Hive (seehttp://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-hcatalog-user/201209.mbox/%3C08C40723-8D4D-48EB-942B-8EE4327DD84A%40hortonworks.com%3Eandhttp://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-hcatalog-user/201210.mbox/%3CCABN7xTCRM5wXGgJKEko0PmqDXhuAYpK%2BD-H57T29zcSGhkwGQw%40mail.gmail.com%3E). To help both communities understand what HCatalog is and hopes to become wealso developed a roadmap that summarizes HCatalog's current features, plannedfeatures, and other possible features under discussion:https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/HCATALOG/HCatalog+Roadmap
So we are now approaching you to see if there is agreement in the Hive communitythat HCatalog graduating into Hive would make sense.
