Thiago - I can certainly sympathize with your position.  I have  
always felt that acts_as_solr belonged as part of solr-ruby.

We do need a committed few folks that are willing to take  
responsibility for bringing it into Apache, which involves not just  
committing code but ensuring the legalities of it as far as an  
official code donation.  It also involves figuring out how to  
distribute releases, publish RDocs, and all that good stuff that I've  
thus far neglected with solr-ruby (other than posting gem's to  
rubyforge).  Thiago - can you commit to helping with the (potential)  
transition?   As for my involvement - it will be August before I'm  
free and clear enough to devote much more than a few minutes here and  
there to it.
