I tried to add Apache Lucene/Solr to this list, but it is impossible with my account (thetaphi). I can log in, but not edit the page. What should I do?
We are testing with latest Java 8 builds and random JVM settings like bitness, garbage collector, compressed oops,... and found, as Rory mentioned, many bugs, especially in Hotspot's optimizer leading to data loss in Lucene.

The Jenkins server running all these tests is available at: http://jenkins.thetaphi.de
Here is the talk about this setup: http://berlinbuzzwords.de/sites/berlinbuzzwords.de/files/slides/Schindler-BugsBugsBugs.pdf
This machine is running Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) with 2 VirtualBOX VMs running Windows 7 and MacOSX 10.8, running tests 24/7 with random settings in burn-all-your-cpu-cores-mode. :-)
