Subject Re: Hosting links to pre-Apache releases
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2016 16:37:00 GMT
Thank you all for your comments and guidance.

Based on this thread, the plan is:

Add a download sub-page to
http://madlib.incubator.apache.org/

This download page will list the MADlib ASF (incubating) releases which are
downloadable from Apache infra.  For pre-ASF releases, we clearly indicate
that these are not ASF releases, and host these downloads on a 3rd party
site.

Regards,
Frank
