FYI, I cleaned, renamed, and changed the Jenkins Jobs, so the 8.5 branch is in the loop on ASF Jenkins and Policeman Jenkins.

Subject: Re: 8.5 release
I’ve created a branch for the 8.5 release (`branch_8_5`) and pushed it to the apache repository.  We’re now at feature freeze, so only bug fixes should be pushed to the branch.
I can see from that we have 4 tickets marked as Blockers for this release.  I plan to build a first release candidate next Monday, which gives us a few days to resolve these.  If that’s not going to be long enough, please let me know.
Uwe, Steve, can one of you start the Jenkins tasks for the new branch?
Thanks, Alan

PSA: I’ve had to generate a new GPG key for this release, and it takes a while for it to get mirrored to the lucene KEYS file.  I’ll hold off cutting the branch until everything is ready, so it will probably now be tomorrow UK time before I start the release proper.

That should give us time to update release docs for the new website too.

Hi all,

It’s been a while since we released lucene-solr 8.4, and we’ve accumulated quite a few nice new features since then.  I’d like to volunteer to be a release manager for an 8.5 release.  If there's agreement, then I plan to cut the release branch two weeks today, on Tuesday 3rd March.
