+1.  Using ant command line parameters for Ivy, the hdfs and mapreduce  
builds can depend on the latest Common build from one of:
a) a local filesystem ivy repo/directory (ie. a developer build of  
Common that is published automatically to local fs ivy directory)
b) a maven repo (ie. a stable published signed release of Common)
c) a URL

Option c can be a stable URL to that last successful Hudson build and  
is in fact what all the Hudson hdfs and mapreduce builds could be  
configured to use.  An example URL would be something like:

Hudson creates a "lastSuccessfulBuild" link that should be used in  
most cases (see my example above).  If Common builds are failing we  
need to respond immediately.  Same for other sub-projects.  We've got  
to drop this culture that allows failing/flaky unit tests to persist.

-1.  If folks really want this, then let's revert the project split. :-o
