Is 'tehfiles' intentional or misspelling?
yeah, lol - was just a comment in the script, not official usage. We'll get official -help style usage output in the script as well (feel free to open a new JIRA if you're feeling it).
Are there any plans for something - anything - that issues a delete command?
What do you have in mind? One could still do that with the SimplePostTool, with
java -Ddata=args -Dc=tehfiles -classpath dist/solr-core-*.jar org.apache.solr.util.SimplePostTool dist/solr-core-*.jar '<delete><id>42</id></delete>'
however bin/post does not (currently) support -Ddata=args. Certainly we wouldn't want a user to type in that XML incantation though, so I imagine there could be a bin/delete script that allowed for clean deleting by id or by query. I'm curious what scenarios and interface folks imagine for a friendlier delete facility.
