Affects Version/s: 0.9.0.1
Fix Version/s: 0.10.0.0
Between 0.8.2.2 and 0.9.0, our release tarballs grew from 17M to 34M. We thought it is just due to new libraries and dependencies. But:
1. If you untar Kafka into a directory and check the directory size (du -sh), it is around 28M, smaller than the tarball. Recompressing give you 25M tarball.
2. If you list the original tar contents and grep for "snappy", you see it 4 times in the tarball.
Clearly we are creating a tarball with duplicates (and we didn't before).
I think its due to how we are generating the tarball from core but pull in other projects into libs/ directory with their dependencies (which overlap).
We need to find out how to sort it out (possibly with excludes).
