I don't make a distinction between solr and lucene development, call me odd.
I did try to help with those few tests (and I fixed some others) but no luck.

I don't agree with you here. I think having two or three failures
daily from the same test (and typically with the same message) is far
worse than not having it at all. You get used to having failing tests
and this is bad. A test failure should be a red flag, something you
eagerly look into because you're curious about what happened. I
stopped having that feeling after a while, this seems bad to me.
