             Summary: Download Storm release link in 1.0.x and 1.1.1 points to 
github(source code) rather than the link. 
                 Key: STORM-2949
             Project: Apache Storm
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.0.5, 1.1.1
            Reporter: Seema Joshi
             Fix For: 1.0.5, 1.1.1

I am following the documentation to [Setup a Storm cluster for 
and I have some comments/ errors to point out.
- The documentation only exists for 1.0.4. Replacing 1.0.4 in the url with 
1.0.5 gives a 404 error.
- The section to [Download and extract a Storm release to Nimbus and worker 
 provides a link to download Storm releases from GitHub. 
 * The tar.gz download from 
[github|] is 8.5MB and is 
labeled as "*Source code* (tar.gz)". This is confusing for a release download.
 * Trying to run nimbus from the extracted folder gives the following error, 
which is consistent with the above labeling. 
 * [vagrant@node1 storm-1.0.6]$ bin/storm nimbus


The storm client can only be run from within a release. You appear to be trying 
to run the client from a checkout of Storm's source code.


You can download a Storm release at []


This link is incorrect in documentation for v1.0.x and v1.1.x.
 My understanding is the documentation is pointing to the wrong link. This link 
should be updated to point to the 
[releases|] from 
[] as mentioned in the error message. I was able to 
setup the storm cluster using this download path.
