Shawn Heisey commented on SOLR-12059:
-------------------------------------

[~edwinyeozl], many of the jars included not only have solr or lucene in their 
filenames, but also have solr or lucene in the directory structure inside the 
jar, and in class names like the SolrXmlConfig one that you already mentioned.  
It is also present in some of the metadata contained in jar files.

I looked at a logfile where all that was done was starting Solr up, adding an 
index, and stopping.  It contained MANY mentions of Solr, and a large number of 
them would require source code changes to remove.

Such a change would require an incredible time investment.  Even if you set up 
a script to do the change and re-compile, it is likely that this script would 
require a few hours of additional work whenever a new version is released.

And as I mentioned on the mailing list before, even if you're successful in 
changing EVERYTHING, if your customer's staff knows anything about Solr, 
they're going to figure it out as soon as they look at the admin UI or one of 
the requests or responses.  There are a number of identifiers that Solr 
includes which are very unique to Solr, but do not actually say "Solr" 
anywhere.  If they google any of those names, they're going to see a lot of 
hits about Solr.  As an example:  Try googling "edismax".

We haven't explicitly *TRIED* to make it impossible to remove the trademark, 
but development has naturally and organically grown up *around* the trademark, 
to the point that it is extremely difficult to remove.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>      Security Level: Public(Default Security Level. Issues are Public) 
>    Affects Versions: 6.5.1
>         Environment: Renaming of solr,xml in the $SOLR_HOME directory
>            Reporter: Edwin Yeo Zheng Lin
>            Priority: Major

> I am able to rename the flie names like solrconfig.xml and solr.log to custom 
> names like myconfig.xml and my.log quite seamlessly. 
> However, I am not able to rename the same for solr.xml. Understand that the 
> solr.xml is hard-coded at the SolrXmlConfig.java. Meaning it requires a 
> re-compile of the Jar file in order to rename it.
> Since we can rename files like solrconfig.xml from the properties files, so 
> we should do the same for solr.xml?
