Subject Re: [VOTE] merge lucene/solr development
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 00:41:18 GMT
Agreed - a better description of what we are voting on should have been 

I'm only for the merge with aligned releases - its the only way Solr can 
really stay on Lucene trunk happily. Aligned releases are also my 
biggest worry (and part of why I initially leaned against such a merge), 
but without it, there goes all of the larger reasons I'm into the merge 
now - Solr can be on trunk and we can have better sharing / less 
duplication between the projects - which I personally think requires 
Solr being on Lucene trunk - or it won't really work at all. And Solr 
being on trunk really needs aligned releases

So we should probably spell out what the vote would mean a bit more 
formally. I assumed we were essentially voting on the proposal Mike put 
out - but that is certainly an assumption.
