About 2B, I am not an English major too :) but I thought since the "it" was
referring to Solr (singular) we should use "makes" instead of "make" but I
think that is OK since I am not 100% sure.

In 3B, I was using the same logic too.

About 4B, I prefer the second version with the "and" instead of "however",
the second version sounds better.

In summary, you guys have done a very good job! I am looking forward to the
official release.

Save journey during your trip.
