  1. You know, I wanted to make a small contribution to Solr as a natural outreach of the work I'm doing with Solr. Namely, XML validation files for the various XML config files, since a malformed XML config or schema file can break a Solr installation quite easily. I tried posting on the developer mailing list, but I don't think anyone noticed in the noise.

  2. Hi Daniel,
