Hive currently builds with a 2.0.0 pre-release.
Unfortunately the HBase project doesn't provide public maven artifacts that are binary compatible with Hadoop 3.1, so unless we add a build step that recompiles HBase with Hadoop3, we cannot update a to GA HBase 2 version.
We should at least make sure that Hive can be built with GA HBase 2 releases.
Update HBase to more recent version.
We cannot use anything later than 2.2.4 because of HBASE-22394
So the options are 2.1.10 and 2.2.4
I suggest 2.1.10 because it's a chronologically later release, and it maximises compatibility with HBase server deployments.
