Tested it with HBase but there is a slight issue with the dependencies. After building rc2 with ivy-enabled HBase, it seems a test HBase jar is deployed in local/lib, even though it's called hbase-0.90.4.jar. (I do not know yet how this is caused!) But since a user should have a separate HBase installation anyway, I don't think it's a blocker for now. A user should simply copy its HBase core lib from the HBase installation into the local/lib directory. This works for me. We should add this to http://wiki.apache.org/nutch/GORA_HBase (btw does anyone know why I cannot edit this one anymore?)

Crawling/parsing works fine after the workaround, so +1 from me. If anyone disagrees with the above, I'm fine with that too and fixing it prior to releasing.

Hi Lewis

The tests still fail but will be fixed with https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-1399 and I don't think it is a blocker.
The signatures are fine and the content of the Maven repo looks OK .

+1 for releasing

Thanks a lot.

We release Nutch 2.0 in this fashion due to the inclusion of
Apache Gora and the likelihood that users will regularly recompile
the code to suit dynamic requirements.

Further, a staged Maven repository of the 2.0 jar, sources.jar and
javadoc.jar is available here:


Please vote on releasing this package as Apache Nutch 2.0.
The vote is open for the next 72 hours and passes if a majority of at

Many Thanks and heres to plenty more.
