Subject Re: A reference to a commercial algorithm in comments - is this all right?
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 18:35:38 GMT
The title of this thread caught my eye...
"commercial" vs open source should not matter.
References / configs for any 3rd party projects (including other ASF
projects) should be judged solely on  their usefulness to Solr users.
