Subject [GitHub] accumulo issue #212: ACCUMULO-4479 start of upgrade text
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2017 04:57:47 GMT
Github user ctubbsii commented on the issue:

    https://github.com/apache/accumulo/pull/212
  
    Repeating what I said in the JIRA, I don't think it's useful to provide static upgrade
instructions for specific upgrade paths, where it's prone to being out-of-date (and possibly
outright incorrect). The documentation should point to the most up-to-date docs on the website,
specifically the an upgrading section of the release notes, which we can create upon release,
and keep updated as we find issues affecting upgrade interoperability.
    
    I also don't think it's useful to document upgrade paths to older releases in the current
one. It's a bit like if Microsoft Windows 2010 installation documentation contained upgrade
instructions from Windows 95 to Windows 98. It doesn't make sense to me.
    
    If it were entirely up to me, I'd simply delete this file and make it a point to have
an UPGRADING section on every release notes from here on.
