Yeah I can see the upside to that def.  But having tested the sources so thoroughly. Testing the binaries would be less work ..

It is nice to able to just `wget https://some miror/mahout-0.13.0.tar.gz`

Let's revisit after we get the first java-only out the door.

Subject: Re: New RC?

I'm yes and no about that.

Yes- because, yea awesome.

no- bc of limited testing bandwidth.

I'd be more in favor of lets push 0.13.0 with minimal binary support, and
then get IT testing all sured up (MAHOUT-1949) and then do another release
soon, with very little additional code, but add native solvers and spark
2.0/scala 2.11 binaries

e.g. lets just get the current one out the door and then focus on
automation to make future release cycles quicker and less painful.

just my .02
