= Proposed Self Contained Change: Apache Pig = 

Change owner(s): Peter MacKinnon <pmackinn at redhat.com>

Apache Pig [1] is a data analysis tool built on top of Apache Hadoop. 

== Detailed Description ==
Apache Pig is a platform for analysing large data sets that consists of a 
high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with 
infrastructure for evaluating these programs. The salient property of Pig 
programs is that their structure is amenable to substantial parallelization, 
which in turns enables them to handle very large data sets. 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners: The Pig [2] package has been accepted into Fedora and 
provides all the functionality from the upstream release with the exception of 
jython (version) and parquet (unpackaged) support.
* Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Release engineering: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
