Github user justinleet commented on the issue:
As an aside, the reason for attempting to bump the version of Kafka is that
there seems to be a bit of a catch where moving Storm to 1.0.1 causes problems
with Kafka, but leaving it obviously means the packaging no longer lines up.
If someone knows a way around that (or even better, a more correct way to
handle that) without upgrading Kafka, I'd probably prefer to use that, and
leave Kafka for another day.
