I tested instructions in "Quick start guide", everything works perfectly.
One thing that I noticed when i ran qserv-configure.py is that you also install ~/.my.cnf file. Why is that needed? I think we should avoid generating per-user configuration files if possible, especially for things that we do not own (mysql).
Quick question about eups tags (still trying to learn eups) - if I install qserv_distrib with tag qserv and then you publish new version on a distrib server and move qserv tag to that new version, will my local installation be updated next time I try to install qserv_distrib with the same tag qserv (which already exists in my local stack)?
Review complete, removing myself.
