stuff in wiki.apache.org would be welcome, though there's the commitment to
keep it up to date.

Once you've created wiki accounts, email this list to get write access.

One thing to consider is prerequisites. Hadoop is not a place to learn
about basic distributed system concepts (liveness, failures, RPC), though
some of the specifics (how liveness is implemented, how Hadoop RPC works)
are going to be relevant. It's probably best to list "things you need to
know". In particular, you should know Java and its build and test tools
before going near Hadoop.
