Subject Re: The Lucene Solr Gradle Build Game plan
Date Mon, 21 Oct 2019 05:30:23 GMT
Hello Dawid, I'm sorry about the absence. I had a two week trip to SF and
that tends to steal my mind, thank god something does.

Yes, I have local changes that you should likely wait for.

There is a substantial issue with how I was mapping our directory names to
project names. That issue led to allowing some funny things and so
addressing it makes the build a bit to a lot less silly. Sorry Tomoko
Uchida :(

Anyway, I had to pause Gradle when I remembered that Solr tests are only
slow for silly or broken reasons.

So I worked on that and then I remember that about a year and a half ago I
had realized SolrCloud was seriously rotting in come very core and key
areas. At the time I spent a lot of effort on my Starburst branch
addressing some fundamental problems and patterns. I then had a 6 week
sabbatical and 3 week movie making trip. Though my own lack of care, I lost
all that work and mostly forgot about the whole thing.

Coming back to that, after wasting a lot of effort trying to find my
previous work, I set off to duplicate that work and hopefully take it a bit
further. I really can't work on anything unless until that is on a clear
path to being addressed unless someone attached to my livelihood forces me.

Meanwhile, I'll be gone half of November on across the world vacation and
December is always a mess.

On the plus side, the gradle build has gotten some great testing, but I'm
little fuzzy on when I'm ready. I will certainly be separating out these
efforts. So I'll be extracting the gradle changes to the gradle branch and
keeping my new state as a separate branch.
