Goodwill is a store to share Thrift schemas.
It provides an HTML-based UI and a JSON API to create and document them. Goodwill is fully integrated with the action-core (http://github.com/pierre/action-core) to browse Thrift-based sequence files on HDFS.
Another usecase is to export Thrift data from HDFS to a SQL-based data warehouse: Goodwill is the middle-man that defines field types and does the translation between Thrift types and SQL types.
