Subject Re: [SUGGESTION] Stack Overflow Documentation for Apache Flink
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2016 02:10:06 GMT
Hi,

This is my understanding of SO Documentation:

1. Any one in the community can contribute, others can validate and improve
2. Users can request a topic
3. As Max mentioned, the documentation is more example oriented and it
doesn't have to be as comprehensive as the Flink's primary documentation.
(Yes there might be some overlap and duplication)
e.g., this is one of the documentation of apache-spark tag :
http://stackoverflow.com/documentation/apache-spark/833/introduction-to-apache-spark#t=201609060203001533016

Thanks,
Vishnu
