      Failed with

      rm: giraph: Permission denied

      Can you please give me permission? Thanks.

        I think the instructions need updating.

        The incubator/content directory is now under svnpubsub control, and entries cannot be removed by members of the incubator group.
        However the contents of directories such as giraph can be removed, and it seems this has been done.
        The final removal of the giraph directory will have to be done by someone with additional permissions.
        Hopefully this JIRA should be sufficient to request that.

        Thanks for the information. Any idea who I should ask to do the deletion? This is a bad experience for folks looking for giraph and finding our old page.

        "Any idea who I should ask to do the deletion?" - see the last sentence of my previous comment.

        "This is a bad experience for folks looking for giraph and finding our old page." - that's an entirely separate issue.
        Firstly, there is no old website, it has been deleted. Only the top-level folder exists.
        There is also a redirect in place, so anyone visiting http://incubator.apache.org/giraph/ is directed to the new TLP site.
        Try it (you may need to clear your browser cache).
