      Description

      The Hadoop releases page (http://hadoop.apache.org/releases.html) indicates that 1.0.* is the stable release and 1.1.* is beta. However, when you click through to download, the stable symlink points to 1.1.1. There is no 1.0.* release available.

      Additionally, there is a link to say that older versions are available from the archive but http://archive.apache.org/dist/hadoop/core/ shows an empty directory.

          /www/archive.apache.org/dist/hadoop/core/ is a symbolic link to /www/archive.apache.org/dist/hadoop/common/.
          However, it doesn't always seem to show up as such when you browse to http://archive.apache.org/dist/hadoop/core/. Not clear why. (I attempted to modify the ownership of the link file to match the other files in the archive, but was denied.)

          So as a work-around, I changed http://www.apache.org/dist/hadoop/core/readme.txt to refer to common instead of core. We can change it back if the link starts working reliably.

          I also copied hadoop-1.0.4 back from archive, and set the stable link to point to it correctly. These changes should all be auto-published to the web site in the next hour or two.
