Yes, that is true, but the main issue will then be "how to not release  
it" if the parent project (i.e. Lucene and Solr) does a release.  I  
could see how that could be annoying and error prone, especially if  
the fixes don't happen right away.  Of course, we could commit them to  
an alternative location until the issue is resolved.  I imagine there  
is going to be a fair amount of work to split them up and integrate  
anyway, so the alternative location could help there.
