RE: Vote For A) README_UBUNTU B) "Compiling on Ubuntu" In README

  Neither. Looking over the README, it contains information for developers
and users. So, we have a README, user and developer manuals, and a wiki.
This information is clearly for developers, maybe it should go in the
developer manual or on the web site in the developer guide section[1].  

  It almost seems as if there are too many documents. Maybe get rid of the
README, and instead have a CHANGES document that details the differences
between releases. Then, in addition, have a user and developer manual in the
distribution, and make those document also available from the web site.
Three documents instead of four, each having their own distinct purpose.

I'd like to get a vote by the contributors on which approach to use.
I'll start the voting:

A) +1 because I don't know how much information might be needed and the
information might change for different versions of Accumulo. Also the README
might wind up with many OS-specific sections. And, lastly because I've
already done it. :)
