Github user takezoe commented on the issue:
Scala is not prerequisite because you don't have to install Scala by hand.
If you just run `make-distribution.sh`, PredictionIO is compiled with the
default version of Scala (currently 2.10.6) automatically.
If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
