Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Kafka 0.7.0-incubating
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 16:30:40 GMT
Sebb,

Just to want to clarify on the source distribution. It seems there are
other Apache projects that release a single distribution with both source
code and jars. For example,
http://mirror.metrocast.net/apache//zookeeper/zookeeper-3.3.3/ . So, is
source distribution strictly required?

Thanks,

Jun
