Subject Re: Using Solr/Lucene to provide our own site search?
Date Tue, 28 Mar 2017 16:34:37 GMT
Just to provide links: - Lucene
(not Solr) based search of issues for several projects. Very deep
understanding of the domain. Adding more is probably not that hard. - Solr-based, search over mailing lists,
wikis, issues, etc for a bunch (a larger number) of projects. Run by
Sematext (Otis' company) - commercial LucidWorks' Fusion-based IIRC
(though some bits are open-source). Lots of projects and sources. But
it feels a bit dogfoody, so the attention it gets is uneven.

So, I think Nick/Chris' point is valid that the definition of the
project may need to take this into account and it is entirely possible
that expanding these (if the project owners would agree) might be
actually the easiest path forward.
