projects both together with and independent of other Apache tools like Lucene Java or Jakarta
POI. Other Apache projects like Nutch and Jackrabbit are potential candidates for using Tika

  Our goal is to take OODT from the early stage of Incubation into a thriving Apache top-level
project, and leverage it in the existing manner at NASA, the NIH, at DOE, and in academia
and industry. Since OODT is a grid framework, it depends on many external services and projects,
no one of which controls OODT's code-base.

+ We feel that the time is ripe to bring OODT into Apache and to grow the community of developers
who maintain OODT. We feel that Incubation will bring a slew of industry-based developers
(and even those in academia, and government) who have no prior experience with OODT, but who
could use OODT at their jobs. We want to attract such developers to become part of the core
OODT development team, and project management aspect.
  
  === Inexperience with Open Source ===
  All the initial developers have worked on open source before and at least one (Mattmann)
is a committer and PMC members in the Apache Lucene ecosystem. Sean Kelly is a well-respected
Plone committer and has made several open source contributions over the years to FreeBSD and
other software. Foster, McCleese and Woollard have all contributed to Apache projects by way
of email, mailing lists, issue reporting and testing.
