Recently HCatalog removed the Hive SVN external, switching to pulling Hive as a regular dependency. This had the additional benefit of letting developers work off the Github mirror.
"ant clean package" fails from a git checkout with the following error:
The directory does exist in SVN but its empty: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/incubator/hcatalog/trunk/lib/
The directory does not exist in the github mirror: https://github.com/apache/hcatalog
Since the lib directory is empty can we simply remove it, along with the following lines in the "package" target?
Attaching the build.xml patch, but I'm not sure how to submit a patch to "svn rm lib" so that would need to happen at commit time.
