sorry for the late response, but I finally got around validating the 188.8.131.52 and it seems that that is still having troubles building with past-singularity HBase. Namely, it expectations are to have a single org.apache.hbase:hbase artifact, which isn't a case anymore. Because of that Flume NG HBase Sink is failing to get compiled.
I think for the purpose of Bigtop release we can dynamically hack-in needed changes into the project dependencies. But I believe you'd like to be aware about the problem for any of the consequent release.
I will try to have the hack in place quickly, so I can report back in case of any other issues.
