o, I didn't find that to be a problem. In fact, in my view that's not a
bug, that's a feature -- at least from my very limited experience, it seems
like that kind of schema setup is probably pretty standard stuff when
building a SOLR core, and so including it in the example teaches you
something useful that you'll need to do pretty much right off the bat. I
don't think that I did it via curl, though ... I must have used the admin
interface, which was just simpler than copying and pasting that
hairy-looking, multiline command into a terminal. If you used the films
example as the basis for a tutorial and wrote it up in pretty HTML, you
could include screenshots, etc. That would make it completely painless.
