I notice that the .proto files are not present in the built tarball. This presents a problem to those of us working on 3rd party tools that need to talk to Hadoop tools such as the resource manager. It means that anyone wanting to build our tools has to install an svn checkout of the code as opposed to simply installing the tarball.
Is there any reason -not- to include the .proto files in the tarball for distribution? It would help a great deal.
