correct, savanna-image-elements is the right place for your dib elements. There is no need to separate vanilla and hdp elements to different sub packages but btw it could be easily done by appending ELEMENTS_PATH as Clint said.

We’d like to piggy back off of the existing mechanism that the vanilla plugin uses. It looks like I should be able to add image-elements to savanna-image-elements/elements directory for the HDP specific setup. Any concerns with this approach? From an organizational standpoint, it would make sense to separate elements from various plugins by creating a directory hierarchy under the elements directory; i.e. a directory for each plugin to keep them separated.

> Erik, you can think of DIB elements like packages. Each has a set of scripts that handle installation and configuration of something. For instance, you might create an ambari-agent element that makes sure the ambari-agent is installed and configured so when the image starts up there's no need to install & configure before using the instance.
