Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-134) Document procedure to install vhd-util
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 22:55:03 GMT


David Nalley commented on CLOUDSTACK-134:


So two comments: 
1. The wiki can't be our official documentation. (we allow anyone to participate there, we
would have to restrict that to folks who are committers if we want our wiki to be our official
project documentation) 
2. The project is only distributing source builds. Wido is distributing his own binaries -
which make no use of - and is producing builds with
that aren't for general public consumption (the builds of the commit that is the current 4.0.0
are long since gone). So if the install documentation doesn't document installing - what are
we doing shipping it? 

Or are you advocating for ditching the guides?
