Subject Re: lucene and solr trunk

Dev is now merged with Solr and Lucene -- that has already passed.  If
that will scare customers away, that's a risk we take -- the benefits
of merged dev outweigh that, in my opinion.

The incremental risk that the details of our svn URLs will scare
people away seems negligible.

And we can always change this up, later, if we decide to.

I think what's important now is a we pick something to un-block trunk
dev.  Sure people can keep working on the branch but I think it'd be
better if we get this simple "svn move" done so that we can get normal
dev going on a shared trunk again.
