RE: How to understand Hadoop source code ?
Thanks Steve, I think creating a list on the wiki is a good place to start, then we can divide and conquer. As newbies, when we figure it out it will be fresh in our minds and we can add to the documentation, I agree that this would be very useful for future participants in the project.

I have created an account (noellejakusz) and would like write access to help with this...

stuff in wiki.apache.org would be welcome, though there's the commitment to keep it up to date.

Once you've created wiki accounts, email this list to get write access.

One thing to consider is prerequisites. Hadoop is not a place to learn about basic distributed system concepts (liveness, failures, RPC), though some of the specifics (how liveness is implemented, how Hadoop RPC works) are going to be relevant. It's probably best to list "things you need to know". In particular, you should know Java and its build and test tools before going near Hadoop.
