: one form to the other - but please, oh please, can we stop distributing 
: the website in the release. Including the PDF's of the website. This is 
: a pain in the ass to have to update and then include in the release as 
: an RM - it's not worth its weight IMO. Disengage from Forrest ... 
: disengage....

I've already contributed a patch in SOLR-2434 to completley decouple the 
need to do any special website building from the release process.  if you 
want to help reduce the pain in the ass factor, please review the 
patch and vote to backport it to the 3_1 branch.

as for why the website is include in still included in the release -- it's 
because no one has ever gotten arround to rolling up their sleeves and 
cleaning up solr's website.  There's no seperation of generic docs 
(commiters list, front page news, etc..) from version specific docs 
(tutorial) like lucene-java did a long time ago; it's never been 
integrated with the lucen-javae website since we did the dev merge; and 
it's never been migrated to the new CMS.

if we start using the CMS (LUCENE-2748), and migrate everything except the 
tutorial to the main lucene site, we could throw away forrest completley 
and just leave the tutorial as one simple HTML doc included with the 
javadocs using doc-files.

patches welcome!
