Subject Re: AW: Easy installer for Thrift in Windows
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2013 14:06:22 GMT
Apologies if I misspoke. I did not submit the installer, I just happened to
notice that it exists. If we send a gentle note on the Contact
Owners<https://chocolatey.org/packages/thrift/ContactOwners>page, we
can get some information on the installer source, maybe fork it
and comb through it.

I understand Apache's policy limiting external download links, no getting
around that. I think we can work together to get an official Apache Thrift
Windows installer listed on the official installation tutorial, especially
now that it's proven technologically possible.
