This isn't enough  for a whole session or workshop, but we've been using
Solr for a lot of small-to-medium-sized projects, and I've been interested
in ways to optimize an environment to host a lot of little Solr instances

I've also been working a bit with Solango (Solr & Django) and am interested
in what kind of development is happening with Solr connectors for simple
webapp frameworks like that.


Just one topic to toss out there.
