Subject Re: 1st hit for Apache Tez
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2014 18:44:01 GMT
Hi Vinod,

Unfortunately this isn't about manipulating Google rankings as much
as there is a page at Hortonworks prominently displayed that says
"Apache Tez", which has the great potential to cause confusion that
"Apache Tez" is a "Hortonworks" project.

A simple solution from my perspective here would be to ask Hortonworks
web page people to make clear on the page that Tez is an Apache project,
and yes as suggested by Hitesh to get documentation like that upstream
into Apache Tez. BTW the Hortonworks page doesn't link to the Apache Tez
site as far as I can tell so that would be another good thing.

I see lots of ApacheĀ Tez prominently on that page, so I'll give credit
where credit is due, great job on that, just need to address the perception
raised at the board meeting today.

Thanks, and again, congrats on graduating to a TLP, we'll just track this
as an open issue in the community to address.
