Currently the way we distribute these proto files is inconvenient for Java
users. The proto files are also included in the source tar balls we
published in the release page, but not with the protobuf.jar file on Maven.
As a result, copying the .proto by yourself is the only way to use it in
your project. This is the current situation and we are looking for ways to
improve it. What we plan to do is to include these proto files in the
protobuf.jar file as well when we push it to Maven. You'll still need to
have the import in your protos, but the protoc plugin will be able to find
the .proto for you automatically. Let us know if you have any other better
