We need to be clear on the scope of comments so as to reduce confusion...

the "build system" (ie: ant) is currently broken, because in the solr-src 
packages, the top level build.xml has targets that do not work (because 
they expect dev-tools to exist) and these targets are explicitly mentioned 
in the top level README.txt

that does not mean there is anything broken about the lucene-src packages.

nor does it mean that we *have* to have an ide-configurator in any src 

This problem is orthoginal to the questions of:
 * should there be a distinct src release for just lucene-java, and 
   should that distinct src release include an ?ide-configurator 
for the orthoginal questions, i'm of the opinion that there should be one 
src release for the entire dev tree, but that's not important right now -- 
what's important is that whatever we ship, should have ant targets that 
work; and at this stage i think we should make the minimal number of 
changes to the 3_1 branch (and the release process) to get artifacts where 
everything listed in the README.txt and "ant -p" works out of the box.
