In that case, I'd recommend before you dive in the depths of the hadoop
codebase -which is deep, complex and not a place to learn about Java or the
like, you start writing mapreduce code to analyse something.

Grab one of the open datasets (like London's: http://data.london.gov.uk/ )
, and think of some things you'd like to find out about it. Then write some
MR jobs to find it out, exploring other features like multiple outputs,
shuffing, integration with other platforms.

If you do this on the Apache 1.0.3 line with the source installed and a
good IDE (IntelliJ IDEA or Eclipse), you can browse into the source while
you do your code, but you are driven by some short term needs -and learning
what needs to be improved.

For help in this, the mapreduce-user mailing list is the place to go
