      Description

      This issue is for discussing pros and cons of moving hbase build to Apache Maven.

      Maven, if you take on its paradigm, does a lot for you. There are also a bunch of nice plugins that do nice reports on state of project; findbugs, that nice plugin where you can give out urls that will resolve to lines in source code (a doxygen-like thing ... I've forgotten its name). Other examples are a docbook plugin that would do the build inline with doc build. We could start up the hbase book using docbook format and the hbase book would ride along with versions.

      As I see it – and its a while since I've done this stuff so things may have since changed – in the way of an easy move to maven is our src/contrib content. Maven would have these as distinct projects pulling in their hbase dependency or, if you wanted to take on the maven subproject notion, then, hbase would be at same level in build as the contribs – it would be a subproject too just built before the others.

      Anyone interested in working on this issue?
