Subject [ANNOUNCE] Welcoming two new Spark committers: Tom Graves and Prashant Sharma
Date Thu, 14 Nov 2013 03:37:02 GMT
Hi folks,

The Apache Spark PPMC is happy to welcome two new PPMC members and committers: Tom Graves
and Prashant Sharma.

Tom has been maintaining and expanding the YARN support in Spark over the past few months,
including adding big features such as support for YARN security, and recently contributed
a major patch that adds security to all of Spark’s internal communication services as well
( It will be great to have him continue
expanding these and other features as a committer.

Prashant created and has maintained the Scala 2.10 branch of Spark for 6+ months now, including
tackling the hairy task of porting the Spark interpreter to 2.10, and debugging all the issues
raised by that with third-party libraries. He's also contributed bug fixes and new input sources
to Spark Streaming. The Scala 2.10 branch will be merged into master soon.

We’re very excited to have both Tom and Prashant join the project as committers.
