If preconf attendees aren't yet on the Google Group specific to the
event, get yourself on:

        <http://groups.google.com/group/code4libpreconf>

There are files posted, and I'd love feedback on how the steps work
for you, at least the very basics - fire Solr up, hit the admin page
- see 16 documents there?  If you get that far, you should be in good
shape.  If not, if my instructions are broken let me know.  If your
environment is broken, fix it :)

> Welcome preconferencers!
>
> I've uploaded a couple of files to the "Files" area of this here
> Google Group.
>
> Directions for their use are in the preconf-alpha.zip file, and pasted
> below so you know what to do even before cranking open a .zip file.
> Note that the instructions reference a preconf-final.zip, though I
> uploaded preconf-alpha.zip.  If you're interested in jump starting
> things before next week, give it a shot and report back any
> weirdnesses that you may encounter in your environments.  I'll publish
> a preconf-final.zip, and possibly an updated base Solr apache-
> solr-1.2-
> solr4lib-dev.zip as well prior to the pre-conference.   There will
> also be a handful of CD's and USB drives with the files available for
> sharing at the pre-conference.
>
> Please try to give the SOLR 101 section a try before the
> preconference.  But rest assured that coming to the pre-conference
> cold is fine, and in fact expected.  However, ironing out
> environmental issues with Java installation or any kinks that might be
> in my instructions is recommended to make the pre-conference go most
> smoothly for you.  Remember, the pre-conference is about Solr, not
> about installing Java, configuring paths, editing registry keys.  The
> more prepared your environment, the more fun you'll have!
>
> For those of you bringing laptops and your own data, please also be
> sure bring along all necessary development tools installed and its a
> good idea to have documentation that might come in handy installed
> locally (rather than relying on a network connection).  USB drives
> come in handy for sharing files, so bring 'em if you got 'em.
>
> I'm really looking forward to this event, and have been preparing for
> it for a while now.  I've even been making changes to Solr itself to
> enable easy launching of different datasets.
>
> Let me know what is broken with the examples or instructions.

> Pre-requisites:
>
>   * Java 1.5+, preferably a JDK, though a JRE may suffice (though may
> error on admin JSP pages)
>
>   * apache-solr-1.2-solr4lib-dev.zip and preconf-final.zip downloads.
>
> To get started:
>
>   - Unzip apache-solr-1.2-solr4lib-dev.zip into your home directory.
> It will put all its files under a solr4lib subdirectory.
>
>   - Unzip preconf-final.zip into your new solr4lib directory.  You
> should now have ~/solr4lib/preconf.
>
>   - Open solr4lib/preconf/code4lib07_preconf_guide.txt
>
>   - Open solr4lib/preconf/flowchart.tiff
