We should update the content of https://github.com/apache/incubator-samza, which is generated by README.md.
1. we are not using the following, right?
To build Samza from a source release, it is first necessary to download the gradle wrapper script above. This bootstrapping process requires Gradle to be installed on the source machine. Gradle is available through most package managers or directly from its website. To bootstrap the wrapper, run:
gradle -b bootstrap.gradle
After the bootstrap script has completed, the regular gradlew instructions below are available.
2. the following seems out-of-date too.
Samza uses Kafka, which is not managed by Maven. To use Kafka as though it were a Maven artifact, Samza installs Kafka into a local repository using the mvn install command. You must have Maven installed to build Samza.
