I am not sure how you came to this conclusion. The way I see it is, all the
folks are working on trunk. Subset of this work from trunk is pushed to
older releases such as 1.x or 0.23.x. In Apache Hadoop, features always go
to trunk first before going to any older releases 1.x or 0.23.x. That means
trunk is a superset of all the features.

2.0.3-alpha, which is the latest release based off of trunk, that is in
final stage of completion should have all the features that all the other
releases have. Let me know if there are any exceptions to this that you
