Subject Re: libhdfs3 development is still going on outside of ASF

Hi everyone,

I plan to remove myself from the HAWQ mailing list (it's fairly high volume
for non-developers).

If further conversation on this issue occurs could I ask for someone to
update one of the public issues?  Either something on Github or
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAWQ-1046 ?
