Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-12059) Unable to rename solr.xml
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2018 23:17:00 GMT


Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-12059:

Based on all of the "rename" questions the reporter has asked on the mailing list (including
this one), I think they are trying to install Solr for a customer and remove all names and
other evidence that the software is Solr.

The level of customization required to achieve this goal is *very* high, and would need to
be repeated for every version upgrade.

If this is the user's goal, the question we have to ask ourselves before we "fix" this issue:
 How much help are we willing to give to somebody in removing an Apache Foundation trademark
from the software?  From a legal perspective, the trademarks are BIG part of the power the
foundation has to enforce its goals.  The foundation can't *prevent* anyone from removing
the trademarks, and I wouldn't want to even if we did have that power, but I don't think we
should spend any time helping.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>      Security Level: Public(Default Security Level. Issues are Public) 
>    Affects Versions: 6.5.1
>         Environment: Renaming of solr,xml in the $SOLR_HOME directory
>            Reporter: Edwin Yeo Zheng Lin
>            Priority: Major
> I am able to rename the flie names like solrconfig.xml and solr.log to custom names like
myconfig.xml and my.log quite seamlessly. 
> However, I am not able to rename the same for solr.xml. Understand that the solr.xml
is hard-coded at the Meaning it requires a re-compile of the Jar file
in order to rename it.
> Since we can rename files like solrconfig.xml from the properties files, so we should do
the same for solr.xml?
