Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1999) Download HEADER should not have pointer to nightly builds
Date Fri, 23 Jul 2010 01:07:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1999?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12891440#action_12891440

Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-1999:
------------------------------------

I've been around the ASF long enough now to know that what seems like iron clad policy, often
isn't.
It's often just someone editing a page to reflect what they think should be the policy,  and
no one else complaining too much - even in cases when there clearly was no consensus.

Related to this issue, I remember the last big thread back in '06 on the infra list.  And
in that case too, it was a single individual that took it upon themselves to add the text
you now see (and there certainly was no previous consensus or even discussion on the text
added).

Trying to draw sharp lines between developers and users is a lost cause... lucene and solr
are for developers themselves and it's one big continuum between user and developer.  Having
people use nightly builds is very important for lucene/solr development.  Having a pointer
to developer resources from *anywhere* should be fine.

The *only* important point I see is to clearly communicate that a nightly build is not an
official ASF release.
