This is great [~nitay].  Can you please write down the instructions for this somewhere so
we know how to do this in the future?

> The Facebook Hadoop dependency uses a local path (systemPath in maven) which is bad for
many reasons. See e.g. (the part
about system scope). Amongst the problems are:
> - We package the jar ourselves in our lib/ folder
> - Anyone depending on Giraph needs to download jars themselves and put them in right
place, but we don't supply the jars.
> - There is no javadoc or sources jar which comes with most open source maven projects
and is really handy
> So I went ahead and created a package from Facebook's code on Github and published the
jar to maven central. This diff updates our code to use that, which fixes all of the problems
mentioned above.
