We have accumulated some good changes in master, like point support in Solr
or sparse norms/doc-values in Lucene. I think it would be nice to expose
these new features to our users, so what would you think about starting to
work on making master ready to be released?
Since the question about the timeframe will be asked, I think we could
target something like early May 2017, which is a bit more than 3 months
away from now. What do you think?
