  = Lucene Connector Framework  =
+ === 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 conversion to usable form needs to be completed; 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? ===
+ There's been a significant amount of discussion pertaining to the LCF document security
model, it's advantages and disadvantages.  Offers of assistance and advice abound.  A non-Apache
code submission has even been made.
+ === How has the project developed since the last report? ===
+ Preliminary security integration with Solr has been tackled.  Online end-user documentation
is coming along and is perhaps 60% complete.  Scripts have been written to make using LCF
easier for the less experienced integrator.
