Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move user manual source to Accumulo website repo
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2017 19:57:30 GMT
copy-pasting from the JIRA issue because I was looking for these in-thread:

* Easier to link between pages and external Javadocs
* Documentation can be broken up into distinct pages which is easier to 
read and better for SEO.
* Easier to update documentation after releases. Only one commit necessary.
* Jekyll+Markdown is more customizable and becoming more of a standard 
than asciidoc.
* Documentation changes that affect multiple releases can be made with 
one PR.

* Documentation will no longer ship with tarball
* Developers cannot update code and docs in one PR
