Subject Re: RFC: Removing 1M lines of junk
Date Fri, 01 May 2015 13:27:57 GMT
Rohit,

I understand and have no issues with this, however, I can forsee parts
of our support organization wanting a binary package (from Citrix)
when this change hits.

I was just adding my $0.02 to the discussion of "does anyone use the
AWS API" and expressing that my employer has little to no concern over
this change (especially if removing the 1M lines of junk helps make a
faster, more reliable management server).
