Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-6871) Need a process for updating & maintaining the new quickstart tutorial (and any other tutorials added to the website)

Adrien Grand commented on SOLR-6871:

There has been no activity for a long time so I decreased the priority.

>                 Key: SOLR-6871
>                 URL:
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Task
>            Reporter: Hoss Man
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 5.0
> Prior to SOLR-6058 the /solr/tutorial.html link on the website contained only a simple
landing page that then linked people to the "versioned" tutorial for the most recent release
-- or more specificly: the most recent release*s* (plural) when we were releasing off of multiple
branches (ie: links to both the 4.0.0 tutorial, as well as the 3.6.3 tutorial when 4.0 came
> The old tutorial content lived along side the solr code, and was automatically branched,
tagged & released along with Solr.  When committing any changes to Solr code (or post.jar
code, or the sample data, or the sample configs, etc..) you could also commit changes to the
tutorial at th same time and be confident that it was clear what version of solr that tutorial
went along with.
> As part of SOLR-6058, it seems that there was a concensus to move to a keeping "tutorial"
content on the website, where it can be integrated directly in with other site content/navigation,
and use the same look and feel.
> I have no objection to this in principle -- but as a result of this choice, there are
outstanding issues regarding how devs should go about maintaining this doc as changes are
made to solr & the solr examples used in the tutorial.
> We need a clear process for where/how to edit the tutorial(s) as new versions of solr
come out and cahnges are made that mandate corisponding hanges to the tutorial.  this process
_should_ also account for things like having multiple versions of the tutorial live at one
time (ie: at some point in the future, we'll certainly need to host the "5.13" tutorial if
that's the current "stable" release, but we'll also want to host the tutorial for "6.0-BETA"
so that people can try it out)
