Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-7371:
------------------------------------------

FWIW, I'm not going to block this, but I still think it is going to lead to confusion, except
for maybe the three people who debug production grids with eclipse.

> 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?
