+ = Lucene Connectors Framework =
- (project add text here)
+ === Description ===
+ Lucene Connectors 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 Connectors 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 Connectors 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; this is probably the
biggest obstacle to developing a broader community at this point
+  1. Javadoc and nightly builds need to be set up
+  1. The first official release needs to be planned and executed
+ === 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? ===
+ We've received several queries and comments from non-Apache developers recently.  This is
a good sign.  There is also a Eurocon conference in Prague which will include LCF, where we
will have an opportunity to introduce the project to a broader Lucene community.
+ === How has the project developed since the last report? ===
+ The LCF site has been fleshed out, and much more extensive developer documentation has been
written and linked into the LCF site.  Preparations have also been made to pull appropriate
build and execution dependencies in using Ivy or Maven.  Javadoc is now available to people
willing to build the project themselves.  The project remains buildable and usable.
