We attempt install following the published instruction on assorted versions of linux both stable and the version prior to the current stable version. The goal is to determine if there is genuine effort by the publishers to provide an installable and usable open source project.
As an Apache project the maintainers must be doing test installs to verify and publish any limitation as to version of operating systems and prerequisites. Put simply, you must provide install instruction that work on whatever OS's you support and your stable code should run on at least one possible configuration.
This software has been determined in violation of Apache minimum standards and indicating it is a usable package may bring liability on Apache Software foundation and the maintainers of this program. Thank you for helping us eliminate fake open source and defunct application.
