Hadoop 3.0.0 maven repository

Recent maven hadoop artifacts are pretty hard to come by.  The central repository contains stable and 2.0.0-alpha releases, CDH repositories have 2.0.X releases, and the apache repository has 3.X snapshots.  That means if you want 2.3.X or 3.X functionality, you're either stuck pulling in snapshots or building/hosting your own releases.

The apache snapshots are problematic because individual build snapshots don't appear to be retained for very long.  Building/hosting your own artifacts seems like a pain.  Hopefully, this is a temporary issue until hadoop 3.X is released.  Until then, here's a maven repository that has (unofficial) 3.0.0 release artifacts with source jars.

It is pretty easy to put in pretty much any hadoop version into the repository.  Visit the project page or shoot me a email to request one!
