    Description

      The Replication procedure in ReplicationSink.replicateEntries() method is not preserving the timestamp of the cell.

      Pointer to the code:
      m = CellUtil.isDelete(cell) ? new Delete(cell.getRowArray(), cell.getRowOffset(),cell.getRowLength()) : new Put(cell.getRowArray(), cell.getRowOffset(),cell.getRowLength());

      The Put and Delete constructors called here assign the timestamp with HConstants.LATEST_TIMESTAMP. Instead we need to keep the timestamp of the cell here.

      Also there doesn't seem to be a test which checks if replication is preserving the timestamp.
