I have some problem with the construct but in general I am fine with merging dev lists, splitting
into modules, merged committers - but not the requirement on tests pass always. In my opinion,
if anything changed in lucene breaks some tests we could open an issue in solr.

I'm not sure why this is such a big deal to you, Uwe.  Just as when tests break today w/in
Lucene, say in a contrib module that you don't personally spend time on, other committers
step up to help and get it fixed and you work with them to see it through.  That's how the
community works.  Why should it be any different after this merge?  No Lucene/Solr committer,
upon seeing you broke something in Solr is going to let those things stay broken, just like
how you and Michael worked to get all the new Analyzer stuff working in 2.9.   I also suspect
that you, being the conscientious developer you are, will either a) make sure someone w/ the
appropriate expertise is made aware of it and work with them to fix it or b) you'll figure
it out yourself and fix it too, thus adding to your skillset and making you a better developer.
 In fact, you've already done this on a number of occasions across the Lucene/Solr boundary
as it is now (Trie fields, analyzers, etc.)
