Subject Need feedback: Browsing and searching solr-user list emails
Date Tue, 11 Feb 2014 05:18:35 GMT
Hi Solr-users,

I wanted to get your thoughts/feedback on a potentially useful way to
browse and search prior email conversations in
solr-users@lucenedistribution list.

In a nutshell, this is a Q&A engine like StackExchange (SE) auto-populated
with solr-users@lucene email threads of past one year. Engine auto-tags
email threads and creates user profile of participants with points, badges
etc. New emails also gets processed automatically and will be placed under
the relevant conversation.

Here are some of the advantages that might be useful -

   - Like SE, users can "crowdsource" the quality of content by voting, and
   choosing best answers.
   - You can favorite posts/threads, users, tags to personalize search.
   - Email conversations and Q&A engine work seamlessly together. One can
   use any medium and conversations are still presented in a uniform way.
   - Web UI supports mobile device aspect ratios - just click on above link
   on your mobile device to get a feel.

Do you think this would be useful for the solr-users community? To get a
feel, try searching the archive before posting in the email list to see if
UI makes finding things little gentler. As more people search/view/vote,
search should become more relevant and personalized.

I would be happy to maintain this for the benefit of the community.
Currently I have only seeded past one year of email but we could
potentially go further back if people find this useful.

Thanks and feedback welcome.

And before someone asks - yes, our search engine is Solr ..
