Clearly not.  But just as I think that making the development of
both solr and lucene easier is a noble goal, I think that giving
people the impression that by choosing to "go with Lucene"
*means* they "go with Solr" as their end solution is not what
we want to do.  There are some places where Solr is just not
appropriate but Lucene may be.

Will this impression be "caused" by a SVN directory url
alone? Of course not.  Merging committer lists, locked
releases, *and* a SVN url which shows this?  Yes, I
think the kinds of VPs and CTO's I've talked to and
tried to help decide whether to go with an open-source
search solution could indeed start to get the feeling that
there's really just one apache solution, the
"Solr/Lucene solution".  And if they look into Solr and
decide that this particular application is not for them,
they may then not look deep enough to see whether
doing a custom Lucene application *would be*.
