Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem.
The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the packaging and interoperability testing of Hadoop-related projects. This includes testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, upgrade, etc...) developed by a community with a focus on the system as a whole, rather than individual projects. Packages have been built on Ubuntu 10.10, CentOS 5/6, Fedora 18, Mageia 1, openSUSE 12.2. They can probably be built on other platforms as well.
