HBase started it's life as a Hadoop contrib module, then a Hadoop
subproject, and then finally a TLP. So for svn, you have to go checkout the
hadoop / hadoop-common repositories and find hbase there. Alternatively,
instead of checking out from svn, you can also download the source tarballs
dating as back as the 0.1 release.
