Odd indeed. But also kind of fun. This is the fastest any podling
reacted to my feedback ;-)

The website looks much better now.

Almost. It really would be better to spell it explicitly (and avoid a phrase
Cloudera's Hadoop distribution -- since this is something ASF is not
looking too kindly on as per http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/)

I'd suggest something along the lines:
   "Documentation for previous versions of Impala in CDH"

The confusion was due to the context -- that link pretending to be an official
Apache Impala (incubating) documentation. I think with the clarification we're
talking above -- your doc usage is fine now.

Indeed! Still, perhaps you can take one extra suggestions I've
articulated above.
