I had entered a JIRA here: 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9206 .  The instructions 
for single-node setup on 1.1.x are radically different from the 
instructions for 0.23 and 2.0.2; furthermore, the JARs and folder 
structure of what you get from the 1.1.x download and what you get with 
either 0.23.x or 2.0.x-alpha is also considerably different.  The deltas 
here, along with Bobby Evans' explanation of the version histories I 
linked to above, gave me the impression that 1.x has one team working on 
it while the other branches have another.  If that was the case (as 
you're not clarifying, it's not) I was then wondering when all 
committers would be more or less on the same page again.

Thanks for the clarification.
