             Summary: Ref Guide: Comment system is offline
                 Key: SOLR-12018
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Default Security Level. Issues are Public)
          Components: documentation
            Reporter: Cassandra Targett

The Ref Guide uses to allow user comments. Sometime in 
December/early January, it was taken offline. 

I filed INFRA-15947 to ask after it's long-term status, and recently got an 
answer that it an ETA is mid-March for a permanent INFRA-hosted system. 
However, it's of course possible changes in priorities or other factors will 
delay that timeline.

Every Ref Guide page currently invites users to leave comments, but since the 
whole Comments area is pulled in via JavaScript from a non-existent server, 
there's no space to do so (see attached screenshot). While we wait for the 
permanent server to be online, we have a couple of options:

# Leave it the way it is and hopefully by mid-March it will be back
# Change the text to tell users it's not working temporarily on all published 
# Remove it from all the published versions and put it back when it's back

I'm not a great fan of #2 or #3, because it'd be a bit of work for me to 
backport changes to 4 branches and republish every guide just to fix it again 
in a month or so. I'm fine with option #1 since I've known about it for about a 
month at least and as far as I can tell no one else has noticed. But if people 
feel strongly about it now that they know about it, we can figure something out.

If for some reason it takes longer than mid-March to get it back, or INFRA 
chooses to stop supporting it entirely, this issue can morph into what we 
should do for an alternative permanent solution.
