Subject Re: Need to improve documentation for v 0.23.x ( v 2.x)
Date Mon, 07 May 2012 16:04:54 GMT
Hello Bobby,

Yes i will file couple of JIRAs and work on them in coming few days to
write how to setup things , include basics which were very good in old
documentation, yes there are many good things which we can take up from
1.0.2 documentation also.

Few days back Yahoo team was saying that they can donate documentation to
community which although old can be improved on to include within Apache.
May be we can get some update on confirmation for permission to use for the

One of the project which is good in documentation ( wiki ) is Apache Mahout
we can learn from them , lots of extensible references , presentations ,
tutorials all at one place at wiki to refer.
