I was not proposing StackOverflow as some official docs.
Solr’s only official doc is the RefGuide, and the official user-contributed
docs is at http://wiki.apache.org/solr/ <http://wiki.apache.org/solr/>
But it may be that some of you Solr users want to contribute to StackOverflow’s
Solr topic, both in requesting topics, writing short snippets and fixing what is
But I wonder if we should consider creating an official, slim Solr User Guide
as well, for end users, structured as a getting-started guide and with focus
on how you achieve a task, not documenting all 99 parameters a plugin can
Regarding the links in the admin, the “Documentation” link should perhaps
link to http://lucene.apache.org/solr/resources.html#documentation
The other links seem ok though.
