Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Drill version 0.5.0-incubating (rc2)
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 18:42:55 GMT
+1 (non-binding)

1. Downloaded src tar, built, ran tests. (33 minutes, including time to download dependencies.)
2. Following installation instructions in INSTALL.md, had permissions issues with /opt/drill.
Had to use ‘sudo’ for ‘mkdir /opt/drill’, then ‘sudo chmod 777 /opt/drill’. Otherwise
sqlline gives 'java.io.FileNotFoundException: /opt/drill/log/sqlline.log (No such file or
directory)’.
3. Ran sqlline embedded. Everything worked fine.
4. Ran web UI, ran a few queries.
* Biggest gripe is that it took me 20 minutes of googling and grepping to find out how. Answer:
http://localhost:8047/query.
* Ran into one issue, logged as https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-1376.

Suggestions:
* Instructions in INSTALL.md relate to building from github, not building a src distribution.
* Instructions should note that ‘-DskipTests’ will make the build run faster.
* Reduce verbosity of tests.
* README should say ‘This is a source distribution of Drill version x.y.z.’.
* Tell people about the web interface. It is not mentioned in INSTALL.md or https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/DRILL/Apache+Drill+Wiki.
