Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache MADlib podling graduation
Date Tue, 23 May 2017 22:46:10 GMT
Thank you for the feedback regarding the dist release directory and release
documentation.

The dist release directory now contains only the latest release. Old
releases have been removed.
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/madlib/

The project release documentation has been updated to include instructions
on removing old releases.
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MADLIB

Thanks again,
Rashmi
