We don't need to have artifacts in the release to do this though. We
could have a nightly build job (for use on dev@accumulo) that makes
the binary artifacts needed. That job can take a git ref and default
to HEAD. if we want to grab e.g. release candidates to deploy we could
then use it.

If these test clusters are going to have to run some script to pull
down 3rd party jars, what's the difference in having that script
either build the accumulo jars or download them from a jenkins job?
