      Description

      Getting started documentation, while having great virtues, has room for improvement:

      1) Documentation is illogical and wrong for this part:
      " $ wget http://www.apache.org/dist/mesos/0.25.0/mesos-0.25.0.tar.gz
      $ tar -zxf mesos-0.25.0.tar.gz" ...then, later:
      " # Install a few utility tools
      $ sudo yum install -y tar wget
      ..obviously using tar and wget is not possible before installing them.

      2) Although vi is fine for many, utility tools having:
      sudo yum install -y tar wget nano
      might make editing e.g. the WANDISCO -repo file way easier for newbies.

      3) Advice to launch Mesos with localhost option ( " ./bin/mesos-master.sh --ip=127.0.0.1 --work_dir=/var/lib/mesos " ) will lead into a state where Mesos UI can not be reached in port :5050 in a production environment e.g. in AWS EC2. Mentioning this would help, not hinder deployment.
