Hmm, I've apparently misunderestimated the name-mooting that's been echoing around lately.

Since "name" can refer to a bunch of partially overlapping things (Apache TLP name; svn directory
name; development project name; product name; etc.):

- Lucene will remain the name of the Apache TLP hosting both the Lucene-Java product and the
Solr product.

- Solr, while ceasing to refer to a stand-alone development sub-project, will continue to
be a product, with no change in its user-facing *product* communications; Solr's downloadable
artifacts, the wiki, the website, and the solr-user mailing list will remain as-is.  (The
website javadocs will need re-jiggering, though, I'd guess.)

Any disagreement?
