Their an open jira for turning hadoops build into a maven build process.
Our release engineering follows hadoop's build process and would like to
stay with hadoop core's process so that we can get their help in release
engineering. That has been the main reason that we do not want to move to
maven currently. I think their might be some interest in moving to maven
later sometime in the future. For now, we would like to stick to ant to make
our task easier for release engineering.
