> This is a vote for the proposal discussed on the 'Proposal about

> VOTE thread!
> 
> The vote is to open up a separate parallel line of development, called
> unstable (on trunk), where non-back-compatible changes, slated for the
> next major release, may be safely developed.
> 
> But it's not a free for all: the back compat break must still be
> carefully tracked in detail (maybe in CHANGES, maybe in a separate
> more detailed "guide" -- tbd), including migration instructions, so
> that this becomes the "migration guide" on how users can move to the
> new major release.  If there are changes that break the index, we will
> try very hard to create an index migration tool.
> 
> The stable line of development (on a branch) will get
> non-back-compat-breaking changes, and will be released more often (as
> minor releases and possible also .Z bugfix releases).
> 
> Changes will go into unstable first and then be back ported to the
> stable branch on a case by case basis as long as they don't break
> back-compat.  This may happen commit by commit, or be periodically
> swept, or some combination (like flex) -- we can hash out this
> logistical detail out with time.
> 
> This is a procedural vote -- we need a majority of the Solr/Lucene
> committers for this to pass.
