[Pulp-dev] Setting up solr with crane for docker search

BTW, I figured it out with some help.

The fields necessary in solr json search results have examples in the crane
tests[1]. Unfortunately, the version of solr I'm using, 6.4.0, has results
that by default are formatted differently. Where crane expects
"ir_stars:7", solr is returning "ir_stars:[7]". I am unsure why this is the
case, nor do I know how to change the solr json results format. When I
modified crane to parse the results, I could successfully docker search.
