Yes I do wish to contribute on a regular basis. I have submitted a
signed ICLA and public key as mentioned in the docs.

I'll also go through the docs for contributors.

> TEXT-80 looks valid to me. So removing the generic type parameters sounds like a good
idea. Note that this API has already been released, so we need to make sure, we don’t break
anything. We use the maven clirr plugin to check our APIs. So after you’ve implemented your
fix, in this case you should check the clirr report. It should not have errors.

I have a couple of questions:

1. Does Maven Clirr Plugin get executed as a part of Maven install itself?
2. How do we analyze impact across Apache projects in case there are
dependencies from other projects.

I'm planning to start with the proposal for TEXT-80 as soon as my id
is activated.
