Subject [jira] [Updated] (LUCENE-5822) Create a markdown formatted README file for Lucene/Solr
Date Thu, 08 Jun 2017 02:04:20 GMT


Jason Gerlowski updated LUCENE-5822:
    Attachment: LUCENE-5822.patch

Put together a README that we can at least use as a starting point for moving this forward.

Some notes:

- I based the outline (and the wording, in some places) off of the markdown-readme's used
by some other Apache projects.  Specifically relied on [Spark|]
and [Mesos|] as examples.  Other layouts
might work better though.
- I made sure all details in our current {{/README.txt}} made it over to the new version of
- There's now _some_ overlap between the root {{}} and the {{solr/README.txt}} file.
 Specifically, both cover basic {{bin/solr}} usage.  I thought about removing it from the
root README my patch creates, but that seems like a piece of info that unfamiliar users would
expect in a root README.  Then I thought about removing it from {{solr/README.txt}}, but it
looks like that file is what gets put in the packaged Solr downloads, and those should definitely
have info on running Solr.  Maybe the duplication isn't a big deal.  Just wanted to bring
it up.

> We have a minimal plain text readme file right now. Github is very popular these days
and we are even accepting pull requests from there. I think we should add a proper markdown
formatted README file which not only talks about the features of Lucene/Solr but also include
a short tutorial on both Lucene and Solr.
