    I think this disclaimer feeds into a part of my worry:
    This feels like we're saying to users now "you should know what jars you need to run Accumulo".
I understand what you're trying to warn against, but is there a better wording to it? It comes
across a bit arrogant (e.g "how should users even figure out what jars they need?").
    If we're making these changes and expecting that users (re-packagers) have the smarts
to build their own distribution, we have to publish the information about what is required
by the core of Accumulo (or at least a baseline for what dependencies are requires). There
may be multiple versions of jars which satisfy Accumulo's needs (e.g. minor/bugfix versions
of a commons jar), but we still know what version *did* work (that we tested against) and
can advertise that.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
