: A 1.4.2 release in development, yes.  That's the earliest point that
: the bug was fixed, and someone
: upgrading from 1.4.1 should look at everything after the 1.4.1 release.

that makes no sense to me.  even if a 1.4.2 release is going ot exist at 
some hypothetical point in the future, it doesn't exist *now* when the 3.1 
release is coming out.  CHANGES.txt should only list real changes since 
real releases.

All of the things listed in the 1.4.2-dev section have actually been fixed 
in the the 3.1 branch as well -- in fact, most of them (all but one i 
think) are double listed in the 3.1 bug section of the CHANGES.txt

We can't predict the future -- we don't know what else might get 
included in a hypotheetical 1.4.2 release, so we're better off listing 
nothing, then listing something that might be wrong.

(this, for the record, is one of hte potential problems i've brought up 
several times about having 3x stuff listed in the CHANGES.txt on 4x, nad 
what happens if there are overlapping releases.  it's why i argued that 
the 3x CHANGES.txt should *only* include things commited to the 3x branch 
(nothing from solr 1.4 or lucene 2.9)
