Subject [jira] [Commented] (IGNITE-2980) Download page must not link to snapshots / nightly builds
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:50:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IGNITE-2980?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15257270#comment-15257270

Sebb commented on IGNITE-2980:

I don't think that is in the spirit of the guidance.

It's important that Nightly builds are not promoted to the general public, so they should
be on pages that are clearly intended for developers only. The main download page is not such
a page.

> Nightly builds / snapshots which are not formal releases should not be linked from the
main download page.
> Such builds have not been voted on and should only be used by developers who should be
made aware that the code is without any guarantees,
> Nightly builds are not formal ASF releases, and must not be promoted to the general public.
> See [1] second para. The second sentence states:
> "Do not include any links on the project website that might encourage non-developers
to download and use nightly builds, snapshots, release candidates, or any other similar package."
