From Andrew Purtell <apurt...@apache.org>

I made an RPM for the Cloudera Hadoop distribution. The details of it are quite distro specific.

I haven't heard anything from over there in a while.

I don't see the practical value of making generic rpms or debs. The
problem is the dependencies on and
integration with Hadoop core, e.g. starting and stopping system
services -- how? Unless we also package core we have no way to
do that in any standard manner. Without that integration there is no
practical difference between an rpm, a deb, or a tarball. Building
vertically integrated distros is out of project scope I think.

I know that Andrew Purtell did compile a .rpm for HBase, do we still have that and is current?
Is there a .deb too? Would it make sense to have that either in a separate build script in
/contrib or is that part of the main build.xml? Just wondering.
