This is an artifact of the project split, since there were no separate
HDFS and MapReduce projects before release 0.21.0. The documentation
for HDFS and MapReduce was all in Common/Core for 0.20.2 and lower.

The websites (http://hadoop.apache.org/hdfs/,
http://hadoop.apache.org/mapreduce/) link to previous versions, but do
we need to add links under http://hadoop.apache.org/hdfs/docs and
http://hadoop.apache.org/mapreduce/docs/ too?
