Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Slider 0.30-incubating RC0
Date Thu, 29 May 2014 02:56:42 GMT
Thanks Justin.

I did miss the compilation instruction in the original email. The markdown
file is at;a=blob;f=src/site/markdown/developing/;h=8bf3954a73ed696868d987fef526f245b010de44;hb=master

We will also add it to the Slider homepage as a stand-alone instruction
outside the release.

These binary files are used for testing. Slider consumes .zip files
containing application definitions to be deployed on Yarn. These files are
used to unit test the ability to consume .zip files and also reject .tar
files (or badly formed .zip files). Is there any way we can leave them as

The slider-funtest module contains code to run functional test against live
clusters. They are run per instructions at;a=blob;f=src/site/markdown/developing/;h=d58c0ea4a3083d15c8438466af933465b945f7cd;hb=master

The issue we need to fix is to not have the functional tests run when
running "mvn test" rather have it explicitly run when proper setup exists.
A JIRA is open towards this end but it was not fixed for the 0.30 release.

I have created a JIRA for the other issues you have identified.
