The little blue man (the mahout) was reborn (samsara) as a honey-badger? He must be close indeed
to reaching true enlightenment, or is that Buddhism?

Hey user and dev,

With 0.13.0 the Apache Mahout project has added some significant updates.

The website is starting to feel 'dated' I think it could use a reboot.

The blue person riding the elephant has less signifigance in
Mahout-Samsara's modular backends.

Would like to open the floor to discussion on website reboot (and who might
be willing to take on such a project), as well as new mascot.

To kick off- in an offline talk there was the idea of
A honey badger (bc honey-badger don't care, just like mahout don't care
what back end or native solvers you are using, and also bc a cobra bites a
honey badger and he takes a little nap then wakes up and finishes eating
the cobra. honey badger eats snakes, and does all the work while the other
animals pick up the scraps.
see this short documentary on the honey badger: )
^^audio not safe for work

Con: its almost tooo jokey.

Other idea: are coy-wolfs.
