Subject Re: CloudMonkey: Does the JSON output feature work for the 4.1 branch at all?
Date Tue, 25 Jun 2013 07:02:22 GMT
Thanks for the reply. I did follow your discussion. I guess currently these
three methods ensure the latest version:
* Build from the master branch
* The temporary new pypi https://pypi.python.org/pypi/cloudmonkey-latest/
* The possible new git repo
https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cloudstack-cloudmonkey.git

Then the instructions in 4.1.1 Developer's Guide will need to be changed to
avoid confusion for existing users.
