Bug#626305: liblucene2-java in squeeze misses many bugfixes, especially SOLR-822, please backport from wheezy

Package: liblucene2-java
Version: 2.9.3+ds1-1
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze

We had a problem with our solr server, cf.

The SOLR-822 made it impossible to search for anything containing a dot (dates,
version numbers, etc.). We resolved the issue by backporting solr-tomcat (which
is not in squeeze any more) and liblucene2-java. The latter version in wheezy
contains  Apache Lucene 2.9.3 which solves lots of bugs compared to the version
packaged for squeeze which contains  Apache Lucene 2.9.2.

So I'd like to ask you to officially backport liblucene2-java to squeeze. The
package solr-tomcat would be very nice to have, too, as Solr is the future of
Drupal. :-)

Yours, Ferdinando
