Subject Proposal to move/hide the general@lucene list
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 16:19:25 GMT
The general@lucene.apache.org list is often misused for help on Lucene or Solr that belong
on their respective lists.

I'm okay with the list being discontinued.  If people are not okay with that, then I propose
modifying the page where people currently discover the list so that they aren't likely to
use it instead of the proper list.

Perhaps a simply adding the text "NOT for users seeking help with Lucene" message in red.
 I can see how users, in a hurry, can look at the existing description (without having red
the java-user list prior) and think that the general list is the right place.
