thx for doing this, I'll keep an eye on the builds

one question: which jdk8? Some of the Hadoop builds (example YARN) are crashing the JVM..there's
a whole list of jdk8 options, including, for ubuntu hosts only, openjdk. Should we switch
the jvm for our nightly builds to open jdk 8?

well as clean up the jobs to be less hacky.
