Subject Choosing Which Branch To Use
Date Wed, 05 Nov 2008 01:20:18 GMT
My current pre-production Solr install is a 1.3 pre-release build, and
I think I'm going to update to a more recent version before an
upcoming product release. Actually, "release" is probably a bit of an
exaggeration; it's more of an alpha test, or perhaps a beta test.
Anyway, the question is which more recent version of Solr I should be
running. I'm not under pressure from on high to stick with an official
Solr release, so all these seem like legit possibilities for me:

Run the 1.3.0 release
Run a more recent build from the 1.3 branch
Run a nightly build of the trunk

Obviously, I would attempt to do sufficient testing before putting
Solr live regardless of which route I chose.

One factor is that I need to run a slightly modified Solr, as opposed
to a 100% out-of-the-box install. Currently I'm using these patches:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-538 (copyField maxLength property)
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-284 (parsing rich document types)
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-744 /
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1370 (Patch to make
output a unigram if no ngrams can be generated)

I also may need to have a custom query parser plugin.

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Chris
