Subject RE: Vote For A) README_UBUNTU B) "Compiling on Ubuntu" In README
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2012 00:25:53 GMT

  Neither. Looking over the README, it contains information for developers
and users. So, we have a README, user and developer manuals, and a wiki.
This information is clearly for developers, maybe it should go in the
developer manual or on the web site in the developer guide section[1].  

  It almost seems as if there are too many documents. Maybe get rid of the
README, and instead have a CHANGES document that details the differences
between releases. Then, in addition, have a user and developer manual in the
distribution, and make those document also available from the web site.
Three documents instead of four, each having their own distinct purpose.

Subject: Vote For A) README_UBUNTU B) "Compiling on Ubuntu" In README

I'd like to get a vote by the contributors on which approach to use.
I'll start the voting:

A) +1 because I don't know how much information might be needed and the
information might change for different versions of Accumulo. Also the README
might wind up with many OS-specific sections. And, lastly because I've
already done it. :)
