-------------------------------

[~ncole@hortonworks.com] Can you please attach a sample for the version definition file, that
can be used to install a stack?

> Use a new concept to install and add repositories:  The Version Definition File (VDF).
 The VDF is used to explicitly state what is available in a release/repository.
> It is desirable to know exactly what is being installed using Ambari.  The amount of
repository management systems (yum/rpm, zypper/rpm, apt-get etc) make it infeasible to allow
Ambari to know what is in them.  It is up to distributions to provide information regarding
a release in a friendly manner.
> VDF processing includes defining the release, versions that are available.  This file
is to be written in XML and validated using XSD.
