Subject Re: RPMs/DEBs for Accumulo 1.6.0 via Bigtop
Date Wed, 25 Jun 2014 15:41:50 GMT
No worries! I don't mean to be getting in the way of Bigtop, I just know 
that I can move faster and provide the ability for people to make 
Accumulo RPM/DEBs in fewer steps, while the bigger cogs spin.

Thank you for your efforts.

WRT packagin tests, we have a number of tests already in our tree (in 
addition to lots of people who like to think about tests). I'm sure we 
can help there :)
