for this reason.  That stuff is not light reading.  Didn't we see Hadoop do exactly the opposite?
 Doug described it as code-base being too big, but I'd say the original list was also too
high traffic (was split into common-, hdfs-, and mapreduce- I believe).

Solr@Lucene trunk (either directly or via regular Lucene jar imports into Solr svn repo)?

The Solr dev list is actually reasonably light compared to the lucene 
dev list.

Personally though, I could go either way.

Its certainly easy enough to filter messages with your mail client if 
you still wanted to browse them separately.

I think this could work without merging dev lists, but it would be nice 
to help nurture the cross pollination and merged dev thoughts/planning.
