Apologies if my original message was abstruse - I want to ensure that  
there is no confusion between 'forward-port' and 'merge from yahoo- 
merge branch'.

Let me try to explain again: there are several forward ports from the  
hadoop-0.20-2xx (branch-0.20-security) which are complete, including  
MAPREDUCE-2178. They are currently part of the 'yahoo-merge' branch in  
MapReduce. These are awaiting a merge into trunk. Trunk (with a few  
merges from yahoo-merge) will have a complete security implementation.

My message was intended to highlight some small number of features/ 
bugs which are/will-be in hadoop-0.20.2xx. Here is a nearly complete  
list of such jiras: MAPREDUCE-517, MAPREDUCE-1872, MAPREDUCE-291,  
MAPREDUCE-2418, MAPREDUCE-2409, MAPREDUCE-2411. I'll check to ensure  
there aren't others.	

Hope that makes sense. Again, apologies for any confusion I've caused.
