Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Nutch 1.1 Release Candidate #1
Date Fri, 16 Apr 2010 14:27:59 GMT
Hi Andrzej,

Sure, I'm just trying to address Sami's comments. I think in the past we used to include a
binary in the Nutch release too, but this time I just created a source tarball and zip. I
think it's better because it cuts down on the size of the release, and more consistent with
other projects that just release source.

As for the tutorial, I'm happy to update it to add e.g., the few lines that say OK now you
have to build Nutch from source instead of just getting the huge hunkin' release. I don't
expect it to be a huge update which is why I didn't raise a big objection (and I don't think
you are either if I'm reading it correctly).

I'm happy to cut another release with these minor updates (to the tutorial and including Sami's
commit that added license headers to like 5 of the files that were missing them) -- however
I don't think we should let this drag on for a long time. In the interest of getting out a
1.1, I'll try and push out rc2 today and if folks have time (especially those like you and
Sami that voted) it would be great to get a check of the rc within the next few days or so
if possible so that I can push this forward.

I appreciate the help!

I don't recall discussing this here ... I'm ot against, but the
instructions should be clear, and if ant downloads stuff then an active
Internet connection is a requirement too.
