Subject Re: Solr 3.6.0 javadocs are missing from the site

Until i added the redirect in .htaccess (so they would start pointing to 
hte 4.0-alpha docs), java URLs like this one (from google, the wiki, 
bookmarks, blogs, etc...) were all broken...

Who the fuck said anything about expecting the RM to refactor the website? 

i didnt expect you to do anything special with the javadocs, just 
upload the new ones (which i know was a big ass fucking pain and i 
appreciate how much time/effort you put into dealing with it) and then 
other people (like me) could volunteer to add markdown pages, fix links, 

if it really bothered you that the 3.6.0 javadocs were using the url 
"/solr/api" and you wanted them to be something else that's fine, you 
could have done an "svn mv" at anytime -- that didn't have to be something 
you took it upon yourself to do as the release manager.  

My concerns are/were simply:

a) the solr 3.6 javadocs should still be online at some path for the 
forseeable future -- just like hte lucene-core 3.6 javadocs are.

b) we shouldn't break existing URLs -- since the "/solr/api/..." 
URLs have been arround for a long time, and are linked to from lots 
of places, we should do what we can to make sure they always redirect to 
somewhere useful.

I'm happy to deal with all of this, i'm just asking folks to not delete 
valid and useful docs fro mthe website.  if you don't like the URL/path, 
then move them, but please don't delete them.

: I don't like that: lucene doesnt need this. why does solr?

Because the URL has always existed and people use it.  it needs to 
point/redirect somwhere, and it's trivial (by editing .htaccess) for it to 
point to the "most revent" version, so we might as well to that.
