Starting with the 0.8 release we are maintaining all but the jvm client external to the main code base. The reason for this is that it allows a small group of implementers who know that language to quickly iterate on that client. Having these maintained centrally was becoming a bottleneck as the main committers can't hope to know every programming language that has a client. This lead to a scenario where the committers were attempting to review and test code they didn't understand. We are instead moving to the redis/memcached model which seems to work better at supporting a rich ecosystem of high quality clients.
