The released kafka jar must be download manually and then deploy to a private repository before they can be used by a developer using maven2.
Similar to other Apache projects, it will be nice to have a way to publish Kafka releases to a public maven repo.
In the past, we gave it a try using sbt publish to Sonatype Nexus maven repo, but ran into some authentication problems. It will be good to revisit this and get it resolved.
