Elasticsearch maven dependency 2.x does not have .zip file


We have a repository with a maven project including a dependency to elastic 1.7.3 type zip. We are using the shell scripts in the zip file to start elasticsearch.
Within this we add our own shell script that initialize the deploy etc etc.

Now when using 2.X there are no longer type zip in the maven repository. Is there any good solution to get the zip package with the shell scripts needed?
Pointing me to https://www.elastic.co/downloads/elasticsearch is not a solution.

Look here: https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/elasticsearch/distribution/zip/elasticsearch/2.4.0/
