Ahh ok I see.  I was geting ready for the release before tagging the 
repository but there is time before the release does happen.  In this 
time you're right we can totally get out of sync.  So basically I put 
snapshot at the end of the version and this will do it eh.  Ok I'll 
revert back.

This is exactly what I was thinking but totally lost sight of 
SNAPSHOT'ing until right after a release.

Yep yep sorry.  I will fix this right away and blow away what's there.  
Plus I guess everyone will need to clear out their local copies of 
incubator-director jars.

Ok I just liked the shorter names plus there was an eve directory which 
matches the working directory eve creates by default.  I will revert 
this back so we're inline with Maven.  I have the feeling this will save 
us some work later somewhere.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll make the corrections tonight.
