Subject Re: Distributing our statistical models
Date Mon, 31 Jan 2011 21:29:08 GMT
The models are pretty large, I hope Maven will be fine with it.  Also, we better make sure
we have the download settings right.  I'd hate to see the usual Maven overzealousness about
downloading all the time if someone does a clean and deletes the models.

Also, we could host things somewhere else, such as an Apache Extras project.  That way you
could offer academic use only models there, while the normal models are ASF hosted.
