+There are several types of changes to Solr configuration that require you to reindex your
+These changes include editing properties of fields or field types; adding fields, field types,
or copy field rules;
+upgrading Solr; and some system configuration properties.
+It's important to be aware that many changes require reindexing, because there are times
when not reindexing
+can have negative consequences for Solr as a system, or for the ability of your users to
find what they are looking for.
+There is no process in Solr for programmatically reindexing data. When we say "reindex",
we mean, literally,
+"index it again". However you got the data into the index the first time, you will run that
process again.
 Review comment:
   [0] It's implied in everything you have here, but I would make the point a little more
explicit if you added a sentence at the end of this paragraph like:
   "It is strongly recommended that Solr users index their data in a repeatable, consistent
way, so that the process can be easily repeated if the need for indexing arises"
