I was swatting a few bugs with the export routine earlier this week and
have completed the conversion.

The nquads 'export' of the new version with entity URIs is being
uploaded to archive.org... very slowly unfortunately (*A*DSL here).

The solr indexer is ready to go - although I think the production schema
is out of sync with the current version, I'll switch the schema later on
tonight but I may need guidance as to how to correctly (ie by which
user, etc) reboot the solr container later.

How to index:

(from within the openbiblio environment:)

paster indexnquads development.ini *.nquads

Few command flags to note:

--batch=, -b=   -- set the number of 'docs' to batch up before sending
an update to solr. --batch=1000 is a good option.

--json   -- instead of trying to update solr, serialise the solr docs to
disc. solrupdate0.json, solrupdate1.json, etc. These files can be used
to rapidly update solr by the following:

paster indexjson development.ini solrupdate*
