      Description

      There appears to be a cut-and-paste error in the documentation for the "Fixed" type. The "namespace" and "aliases" fields probably shouldn't be there.

      Text of the current online documentation (1.7.7):

      https://avro.apache.org/docs/current/spec.html#Fixed

      Fixed

      Fixed uses the type name "fixed" and supports two attributes:

      name: a string naming this fixed (required).
      namespace, a string that qualifies the name;
      aliases: a JSON array of strings, providing alternate names for this enum (optional).
      size: an integer, specifying the number of bytes per value (required).

      For example, 16-byte quantity may be declared with:

      {"type": "fixed", "size": 16, "name": "md5"}
