Speaking just for myself here actually I care much less about the points
above than you might think.  I don't need libhdfs3 to be governed by the
ASF to find it useful.  I don't mind packaging up and using unreleased
versions.  I don't care that it isn't integrated with HAWQ (in fact, I
somewhat prefer that it remains separate).  I *do *prefer that it lives in
a separate repository on GitHub.

I don't mean to be contrarian here, just clarifying where I can clarify.
My situation/priorities may not be representative.
