Subject Re: [VOTE] merge lucene/solr development (take 3)

Yes railroading.

Many people don't want this to occur.  More than just minus 2. 
Underlying concerns are not being addressed.  Vetos count.  Ignoring 
that is ignoring how Apache operates.  Merging projects is definitely a 
code change.  Getting around it by saying this is a goal is 
fundamentally wrong.

1) What prevents functionality be moved over into Lucene within the 
current project structure?  Nothing, so why are we even discussing this.

2) Why is Solr getting special treatment?  Because there is a lot of 
committer overlap?  Should I propose to merge Nutch in too, lets just 
have one big project, no distinctions.

3) Why the big push here to blur project responsibilities? Idk, I keep 
wondering that myself.

the Apache organization.
