agree with david
as your schedule gets packed there are more than a few that are willing to pickup the slack
if the branch is checked-in and labelled we can tackle what needs to be done

Subject: Re: The Lucene Solr Gradle Build Game plan

Thanks for your efforts Mark!

Why has the migration to Gradle somehow been blocked by performance improvements to Solr's
What are the blockers to the Gradle branch being merged to master?  It's an experimental shadow
build, so... none?

I appreciate you want everything to be great from the beginning but I think it's better to
try and find that subjective line where it's good enough to be committed then iterated on
in follow-up issues.

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.
