Thanks Giri!

Steve, can you review this?  Does this look like it's on the right track?

> To let people downstream build/test with hadoop, using Apache Ivy or Apache Maven2 to
pull it down, hadoop-core needs to be published to the apache repository with a .pom file
that lists its mandatory dependencies.
> In an automated build process, this means
> -having a template XML pom defining all included dependencies (and excluded transient
dependency artifacts)
> -having a property file driving version numbering of all artifacts
> -copying this template with property expansion to create the release POM file
> -public releases only: sticking this POM file up on people.apache.org in the right place,
along with the JAR and some .md5 checksums
> There's a risk that if the hadoop team dont do this, someone else will (as mahout are
doing under http://people.apache.org/~kalle/mahout/maven2/org/apache/hadoop/ )
> This is bad as hadoop end up fielding the support calls from someone elses files. 
> Before automating the process, existing hadoop-core JARs can be pushed out with hand-encoded
POM files. The repository police dont allow pom files ever to be changed, so supporting existing
releases (.16.2, 0.16.3 ... ) is a way of beta testing the POMs.
