Subject Re: Installing Flink with Homebrew
Date Sun, 08 May 2016 23:58:57 GMT
Update: I filed FLINK-3883 to improve the names of the shell scripts for inclusion on the system
path.   Pending a discussion on that, I adjusted the formula PR to place only the `flink`
command on the path (not the pyflink commands).   

Reflecting a bit, I don’t think the various server scripts (flink-daemon.sh, start-cluster.sh,
etc.) belong on the system path.
