Subject Re: [VOTE] merge lucene/solr development (take 3)

This logic escapes me.

Nutch hatched Hadoop.  Hadoop was perceived to be of much broader utility
than just for nutch so it was made more general and a separate project was
formed.  Hadoop does not depend on Nutch.

Lucene existed.  Solr was built to make it easier to use Lucene.  The
developers of Solr built a bunch of stuff that was specific to server-ness
and a bunch of stuff that would have general utility to many Lucene
developers.  Solr depends critically on Lucene and can be seen as a Lucene

How does this analogy fit together?  Is it supposed to be Hadoop is to Nutch
as Solr is to Lucene?  That seems so clearly wrong it can't be what you were
