Hi Shalin - I like your attitude ;)


Yonik's email was the notification of the plan :) Though we had no plan. 
When Robert and I made the branch we had no plan really - we just needed 
a place to put together our patches and do the final work. We were 
trying to do it with patches, but it was becoming difficult. But when we 
started we had no real plan - just to see if we could get Solr up and 
running on Lucene 3.01 and then trunk. Anything beyond that, we have not 
planned for - and before that was even completed, there were emails to 
java-dev about it. But we conceived nothing beyond seeing if we could 
get Solr running on the latest Lucene.

 From our perspective, we would have been just as happy with a branch on 
my local hard drive! That would have taken longer to setup though.
