For now I just checked in the .jars under hbase-handler/lib to avoid having to pull down the huge tarballs. If individual jars were available (HBASE-1933), we could use Ivy to pull those.
Need to get hive_hbase-handler to work with hbase versions 0.20.4 0.20.5 and cloudera CDH3 version
Upload Hbase jars to a public maven repository
Deploy ZooKeeper jars/artifacts to a Maven Repository
