That depends. It could be argued it should be a top level project or 
that it should be closer to the Lucene project. Some people are arguing 
for both approaches right now. There are two directions we could move in.

It also causes negatives between Solr/Lucene that some are looking to 
address. Hence the birth of this proposal. Going TLP with Solr will only 
aggravate those negatives, not help them.

While the communities operate fairly separately at the moment, the 
people in the communities are not so separate. The committer list has 
huge overlap. Many committers on one project but not the other do a lot 
of work on both projects.

There is already a strong link with the personal - merging the 
management of the projects addresses many of the concerns that have 
prompted this discussion. TLP'ing Solr only makes those concerns 
multiply. They would diverge further, and incompatible overlap between 
them would increase.
