Subject Re: [VOTE] MADlib v1.11-rc1
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 15:39:32 GMT
Requesting a point of vote clarification:

Caveat: I am relatively new to the Apache HAWQ incubating project and my
level of experience with general Apache processes (incubating or otherwise)
is limited. Thus, my point of clarification and follow up question may be
misguided. I apologize if this is the case.

The "[VOTE] MADlib v1.11-rc1" email indicates: "We're voting upon the
source (tag):  rc/1.11-rc1".  I have been wondering when the initial binary
release would be coming up for vote. Especially, in light of the use of
Apache Infrastructure for build processes note. As I was reviewing the
source tarball in on the Apache dist server (,
I noticed along with the source tarballs (and supporting pgp signature and
hashes) there are also what looks like binary files
(and supporting pgp signature and hashes). Previous votes only included
source tarballs on the dist server. So the point of clarification I'm
seeking, are the binaries also up for vote?

Additionally, the Apache HAWQ incubating project is undergoing our first
release that is including convenience binaries. This initial vote is
explicitly calling out the source and convenience binaries being voted on.
I haven't seen a reference to binaries being part of any previous Apache
MADlib vote process. I happened to look at the previous 1.10.0 release
directory on the Apache dist server (
and was surprised to find binary files as well (this also applies to 1.9 &
1.9.1). Shouldn't the binary files have been voted on by the community
before being added to the release area on the dist server?
