Subject Re: 3.1 release? Was: Re: [VOTE] Take 2: Open up a separate line for unstable Solr/Lucene development
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 03:12:58 GMT
I would like to think that if 3.1 is cut w/o flex (and following dependent
issues), then we will allow people to re-commit the already committed code
changes to the 3.1 branch before it is released. Then, flex et al. become
the next 4.0 and 3.1 will be the first minor stable release of 3.x w/ some
of the features that came post-flex (exercising our svn merge skills :)).
