[openstack-dev] [savanna] savanna-extra and hadoop-patch

I didn't get back to this on Friday and it got merged this morning, so 
here's my feedback.

The savanna-extra repository now appears to hold (a) DIB image elements 
as well as (b) the source for the Swift backed HCFS (Hadoop Compatible 
File System) implementation.

If I understand this correctly, (b) is actually the patch set that is 
being proposed to the Apache Hadoop community. That patch set has not 
been accepted and is being tracked in HADOOP-8545[0], which appears 
stalled since July 2013.

Let's break Savanna's DIB elements out of savanna-extra and into 
savanna-image-elements. It has a clear path forward and a good 
definition of scope.

Let's also leave savanna-extra as a grab bag, whose only occupant is 
currently the Swift code. Eventually that code will need a proper home, 
either contributed to Apache Hadoop or broken out as its own project.
