For all the discussion about deprectatoin, etc, the patch for
HADOOP-544 has broken trunk! It no longer compiles on Hudson. The contrib eclipse plugin relied on an API that you considered non-Public (JobStatus and perhaps others). Given we have no well defined public API yet, I don't think you can assume that classes declared "public" aren't actually public. At a minimum, the release notes should indicated that methods were removed and not deprecated.

Can we get this fixed today?
