FOSWIKI_ROOT/solr/multicore/foswiki missing

Trying to install SolrPlugin in Foswiki 1.1.9. I downloaded and installed the code which was published on July 14th, 2013.

The description under says:
By default SolrPlugin comes with a predefined core named "foswiki". All data of this core is thus stored in the .../solr/multicore/foswiki/ directory. All cores have got separate URLs to access them: [...] To create a new core, copy the .../solr/multicore/_template directory to a new directory under the multicore directory [...]

So I would expect that after installation there should be a $FOSWIKI_ROOT/solr/multicore/foswiki directory and a template directory called $FOSWIKI_ROOT/solr/multicore/_template, or at least one of the two. In those directories, I would expect configuration fields for indexing Foswiki contents, such as the solrconfig.xml file. However, I cannot find either of those directories.

Did I misunderstand the documentation, or is something missing in the current installation packages?

Update: From what I can see, the missing directories are indeed not part of the installer packages for the plugin. In the meantime, I found the missing directories in the github repo at The structure there is as follows:

    conf (symbolic link to ../conf)
    conf (symbolic link to ../conf)
