  = Lucene Connector Framework =
- (project add text here)
+ === Description ===
+ Lucene Connector Framework is an incremental crawler framework and set of connectors designed
to pull documents from various kinds of repositories into search engine indexes or other targets.
 The current bevy of connectors includes Documentum (EMC), FileNet (IBM), LiveLink (OpenText),
Patriarch (Memex), Meridio (Autonomy), SharePoint (Microsoft), RSS feeds, and web content.
 Lucene Connector Framework also provides components for individual document security within
a target search engine, so that repository security access conventions can be enforced in
the search results.
+ Lucene Connector Framework has been in incubation since January, 2010.
+ === A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation
+  1. End-user documentation needs to be converted into a usable form
+  1. Strategy is needed for developing an Active Directory authority service, for mapping
Kerberos principals to AD SIDs
+  1. Testing strategy under Apache needs development
+ === Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware  of? ===
+  1. We'd like to know whether there is any official Apache position on inclusion of NTLM
implementations in ASF projects, since we've gotten mixed signals on this from other developers.
 This represents a crucial piece of functionality needed to support LiveLink, Meridio, SharePoint,
RSS, and Web connectors properly.
+ === How has the community developed since the last report? ===
+ So far, most of the activity has been from the mentors and the committers, but given the
nascent state of the project this is not surprising, and we expect interest to continue growing.

+ === How has the project developed since the last report? ===
+ Lucene Connector Framework was voted into the Incubator in January 11, 2010.  The following
has been done since then:
+  * Mailing lists set up
+  * Site created
+  * SVN area set up
+  * Code grant from MetaCarta accepted in early February, including Apache 2.0 headers on
all pertinent files, and was committed to SVN at that time
+  * An ant build system for the Java code was created and tested
+  * Code was MetaCarta de-branded
+  * Code was formatted in accordance with Apache standards
+  * Issues related to upstream propagation of features into other Apache projects were opened
+  * Documentation for building and hand setup was committed
+  At this point the project is buildable and usable.
