> Give me a few weeks or so to completely finish the code and documentation and 
> I'll submit a single big patch for all the work to this JIRA.

If you want to get more feedback as you go, please attach interim patches too, 
rather than just the final patch.  That way folks who monitor the -dev mailing 
list will see the updates and can try them in the usual manner.  We generally 
don't put things into the "Patch Available" state until the contributor 
believes that the patch is in a final form.

> Everyone has access to ASF svn?

I think all that Nigel meant was that not everyone can submit patches by naming 
an Apache svn revision since not everyone has commit access to Apache's svn.  
We try to use a uniform mechanism, the same for committers as non-committers.  
Committers generally have to do more work, not less, than other contributors, 
since every patch committed must be reviewed and accepted by a committer.  
Committing is a duty, not a privilege.

> Here's a patch which adds a little WriteLock helper class for performing 
> leader elections or creating exclusive locks in some directory znode. Note 
> its an early cut; am sure we can improve it over time. The aim is to avoid 
> folks having to use the low level ZK stuff but provide a simpler high level 
> abstraction.
