I agree if it is close to a release we should try to synchronize.

Since i don't live in an environment where "official release" is  
important, it has never felt like a big deal.  Also if you are  
cracking into the lucene source, it seems like you are beyond that  

The lucene version should be well documented in CHANGS.txt, but we  
could do more to make it easier.  Perhaps add maven source artifacts?

I'm not sure this would even work, but is it possible for us to add an  
svn link to the lucene version we are currently depending on?   
svn:externals or something like that?
