Improve tarball distributions

                 Key: HADOOP-7371
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7371
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: build
         Environment: Java 6, Redhat 5.5
            Reporter: Eric Yang
            Assignee: Eric Yang

Hadoop release tarball contains both raw source and binary.  This leads users to use the release
tarball as base for applying patches, to build custom Hadoop.  This is not the recommended
method to develop hadoop because it leads to mixed development system where processed files
and raw source are hard to separate.  

To correct the problematic usage of the release tarball, the release build target should be
defined as:

"ant source" generates source release tarball.
"ant binary" is binary release without source/javadoc jar files.
"ant tar" is a mirror of binary release with source/javadoc jar files.

Does this sound reasonable?
