Subject Re: Spark 2.0.0-preview artifacts still not available in Maven
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2016 18:19:41 GMT
Precisely because the naming of the preview artifacts has to fall outside
of the normal versioning, I can easily see incautious Maven users a few
months from now mistaking the preview artifacts as
spark-2.0-something-special instead of spark-2.0-something-stale.
