-<section><title>Incubation Status</title>
-<p>Apache Lucene Connector Framework (LCF) is an effort undergoing incubation at The
Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Lucene PMC. Incubation is required of all
newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications,
and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF
projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability
of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

+	<title>What Is the Lucene Connectors Framework?</title>
+	<p>The Lucene Connectors Framework (LCF) is an effort to provide build and support
an open source framework for connecting source content repositories like Microsoft Sharepoint
and EMC Documentum, to target repositories or indexes, such as Apache SOLR.  LCF also defines
a security model for target repositories that permits them to enforce source-repository security
policies.</p>
+	<p>Currently included connectors support FileNet P8 (IBM), Documentum (EMC), LiveLink
(OpenText), Patriarch (Memex), Meridio (Autonomy), Windows shares (Microsoft), and SharePoint
(Microsoft).  Also included are a general file system connector, a general JDBC connector,
a general RSS crawler, and a general web crawler.  Currently supported targets include Apache
SOLR and MetaCarta GTS.</p>
+	<p>The original LCF code base was granted by MetaCarta, Inc., to the Apache Software
Foundation in December 2009.  The MetaCarta effort represented more than five years of successful
development and testing in multiple, challenging enterprise environments.</p>
+    </section>
 
+    <section>
+	<title>Project status</title>
+	<p>There are currently no released versions of LCF available.  However, a trunk svn
checkout has been built and successfully hand-tested.  Nightly builds and online javadoc will
be coming shortly.</p>
+    </section>
 
+    <section>
+	<title>A philosophical note about third-party repositories</title>
+	<p>Many of the connectors included with LCF currently require third-party libraries,
packages, or other licensed materials in order to be built.  The code for these connectors
can be distributed under Apache guidelines because they are conditionally compiled; that is,
you as a developer must supply the necessary third-party components before the connector will
build.  While we have every intention of trying to reduce the number of affected connectors
by means of clean-room development under the auspices of ASF, realistically the current situation
will not change in any dramatic way very quickly.  The focus of this group remains primarily
on providing solutions.</p>
+	<p>The required libraries, tools, and procedures for building each of these connectors
are well documented in the Wiki pages for this project.</p>
