前にも噂になりましたが、Yahooが Hadoopプロジェクトを Spin Outすることが
ほぼ確実になったようです (新会社の経営陣の名前が特定されています):

  "A core development group at Yahoo is being given venture capital
   backing and will be spun off to further the rapid enterprise-style
   development of Hadoop. Within a few days, "something over 20" core
   committers and architects of Hadoop code will move off the Yahoo
   campus in Sunnyvale, Calif., into offices nearby to form Hortonworks,
   an independent company, said Eric Baldeschweiler, Yahoo's VP of
   software engineering for Hadoop, in an interview. He will become
   CEO of the new firm."

   "Jay Rossiter, senior VP of the cloud platform group at Yahoo,
   said Hortonworks not only has Yahoo's blessing but Yahoo is an
   investor in it, along with Benchmark Capital. The number of
   developers leaving Yahoo is a fraction of the total working on
   Hadoop. The two groups will "co-develop the next Hadoop release
   together," Rossiter said in an interview."

  "Rob Bearden, a partner at Benchmark, will become COO of Hortonworks.
   He is the former president of SpringSource, the firm behind the
   Spring Framework for Java developers, acquired in 2009 by VMware
   for $420 million."

  ""With the paths that go through Hadoop [at Yahoo!], the latency
   is about fifteen minutes," Yahoo! chief technology officer Raymie Stata
   told The Register at the company's annual Hadoop Summit on Wednesday
   in Santa Clara, California. "In some cases, that's plenty 'real-time'.
   And we have been trying to get that down to less than fifteen minutes.
   But it will never be true real-time. It will never be what we call
   'next click', where I click and by the time the page loads, the semantic
   implication of my decision is reflected in the page.""
