Hi Tanton,

We have canopy and kmeans in trunk that you are welcome to use 
(https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/mahout/trunk). Please post any 
usability questions you may have or suggestions for improvements to the 
Mahout user list (mahout-dev@lucene.apache.org). There is some 
documentation on the wiki 
and you can inspect the unit tests for more information. I'm in the 
process of building some examples and those will get committed to trunk 
in a week or so.

Smooth sailing,
