      Description

      This is not a blocker.

      This is the 'mvn versions:display-dependency-updates'

      The following dependencies in Dependency Management are using the newest version:
      [INFO] net.sf.jopt-simple:jopt-simple ................................... 3.2
      [INFO] org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-core ................................. 0.20.2
      [INFO]
      [INFO] The following dependencies in Dependency Management have newer versions:
      [INFO] com.thoughtworks.paranamer:paranamer ................ 2.3 -> 2.3-debug
      [INFO] org.apache.velocity:velocity ...................... 1.6.4 -> 1.7-beta1
      [INFO] org.codehaus.jackson:jackson-mapper-asl ............... 1.4.2 -> 1.7.3
      [INFO] org.jboss.netty:netty ..................... 3.2.1.Final -> 3.2.4.Final
      [INFO] org.mortbay.jetty:jetty ............................. 6.1.22 -> 6.1.26
      [INFO]
      [INFO] The following dependencies in Dependencies have newer versions:
      [INFO] junit:junit ........................................... 4.8.1 -> 4.8.2
      [INFO] org.slf4j:slf4j-api .................................. 1.5.11 -> 1.6.1
      [INFO] org.slf4j:slf4j-simple ............................... 1.5.11 -> 1.6.1

      We should consider a newer Jackson version, at least the latest 1.4.x, but perhaps higher.
      Junit is a trivial upgrade.
      slf4j has some changes affecting compatibility (but is API compatible) in 1.6.x. We may want to delay that one.
      Jetty and Netty can be upgraded.

      The most important one above is Jackson since it is the most likely to have classpath collisions. Even though we do not use features from newer versions, it might be wise to move to that.

      For plugins, there are these updates:
      [INFO] The following plugin updates are available:
      [INFO] maven-surefire-plugin ................................ 2.7.1 -> 2.7.2
      [INFO] org.codehaus.mojo:exec-maven-plugin ...................... 1.1 -> 1.2

      Both of which seem minor by their release notes.
