Subject Re: [VOTE] Release DataSketches-memory 1.2.0-incubating-RC1
Date Sat, 16 Nov 2019 01:33:55 GMT

Thank you for your vote!

WRT your questions:

1. LICENSE: Good suggestion, thanks, I will correct in master.  This will
need to be corrected in our other repository components as well.
2. The Google group / forum is still active.  We plan to deprecate this and
have users either use a user@ list (library wide) or GitHub issues, which
are focused on a specific component (eg., Java, C++, Memory, Hive, etc.).
This forum is mostly used by novices learning about the library.  For
"issues" and bugs users like to use the GitHub "issues".
3.  The link has been widely used and published in
articles, scientific papers, presentations, blogs, books, etc, and as soon
as our website gets successfully moved this link will become a redirect to
datasketches.a.o  As soon as our website is moved, I will change these
links to datasketches.a.o. throughout the library.  Nonetheless this link
will have to be a valid link for a long time.
4. File [1] authors.  These folks were contributors to the code long before
we decided to move to Apache.  They were either employees of Yahoo, OR had
signed CLA's with Yahoo. Therefore, by definition, all of the copyrights
were licensed to ASF at the time we submitted the Copyright Grants to ASF
early this year.
