Re: [ANNOUNCE] hadoop-2.0.3-alpha released!
I just installed the docs for 2.0.3-alpha on the website, which fixes
the release notes broken link among others.

With the site's conversion to svnpubsub, when a release is made the
release manager needs to now copy the documentation from the release
tarball into subversion, as Harsh noted in his earlier message.  I
have updated Hadoop's HowToRelease document to describe this.
