Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Lucene/Solr release management

So I changed my mind: I think calling the script was premature, since it only
did the one thing, so I’ve renamed it to and cleaned it up a bit.

If we decide to go the central script route, we can add then.  That script
will likely just call out to other (standalone) scripts; it probably won’t hold any task

files.  (This is to simplify the task of figuring out which JIRAs in a release are duplicated
in CHANGES.txt under previously unreleased versions - with a regex, you can do a search/match-all
in a regex-aware editor and very quickly find matching JIRAs under other releases.)  The script
will need work to accept commands to do other things, though: I didn’t put anything in place
to do the command-switching thing.
