There are also other ways to help than coding. Documentation, Java docs,
writing test cases (look at the code coverage reports and pick something
not already covered). Review or comment on patches, work on the new Angular

Try installing Solr and note any ambiguous docs and suggest better ones,
the sky is the limit.

There's a chronic need for better JavaDocs.

In short, pick something about Solr/Lucene that bugs you and see what you
can do to improve it ;)
