Subject Re: What is Overseer?

: So, is Overseer really only an "implementation detail" or something that Solr
: Ops guys need to be very aware of?

Most people don't ever need to worry about the overseer - it's magic and 
it will take care of itself.  

The recent work on adding support for an "overseer role" in 4.7 was 
specifically for people who *want* to worry about it.

I've updated several places in the solr ref guide to remove some 
missleading claims about hte overseer (some old docs equated it to running 
embedded zookeeper) and add some more info to the glossary..
