I think we are on the same page here about working hard to build the
community. We need to work hard to make the community grow. I was merely
saying that how that effort converts into adoption is not something that can
be predicted. I hope that clarifies. Always looking for guidance to make the
most out of our efforts at community building and ways we can improve.

I hope the information provided in this thread helps display that we are
working hard and committed to building a vibrant Apache Tez community.

Really, I was going to run away for a bit, but my feeling is that this
statement is amazingly naive about how communities are built.

Community doesn't just happen.  Community doesn't just grow of its own
accord.  Community grows when people make serious, explicit actions to help
it grow, to bring in newcomers, to publish plans in many places *before*
code is written.

Building community is hard work that you have to intend to do.  If you don't
do the work, it won't just happen any more than code writes itself.
