+Nutch is web search software.  It builds on the Apache Lucene search library, adding a crawler,
web database (including full link graph), plugins for various document formats, user interface,
etc.  It is currently used by sites such as,,
and the Internet Archive.
+Nutch is a two-year-old open source project, currently hosted at Sourceforge and backed by
it's own non-profit organization.  The non-profit was founded in order to assign copyright,
so that we could retain the right to change the license.  We have now determined that the
Apache license is the appropriate license for Nutch and no longer require the overhead of
an independent non-profit organization.  Nutch's [ board
of directors ] and its developers have both been polled and support a move to the Apache foundation.
