but not limited to adding scheme support in Generic JDBC Connector, brand new client API or
adding splitter for numeric/decimal type that is essentially must have for imports from Oracle.

Sqoop PMC has agreed to follow the same model that was in place for couple of previous releases
where one committer will step up as a Mentor and will guide community volunteer to do the
release. I've step up to be the mentor.

to drive the release. Having said that I think that it would be fair to give the opportunity
to the other volunteer prior offering this option to the broader community.
