Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "OpenNLPProposal" by GrantIngersoll
Date Tue, 09 Nov 2010 11:57:08 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "OpenNLPProposal" page has been changed by GrantIngersoll.


  The activity level of the OpenNLP project has fluctuated over that past 10+ years, with
a large uptick in the last two years especially. Most recently, due both to the availability
of new documentation and the release of version 1.5 , there have been many more downloads
and page views for the OpenNLP project. In fact, September 2010 had the most downloads (1,561)
and project web hits (226,391) of any month since the project’s beginning in 2000, and October
is keeping pacing with that figure so far. As a result, OpenNLP has gone from being in the
2000th to 4000th ranked project (between January and May, 2010) to being ranked 570, 314,
181 and 439 for July, August, September, and October respectively. Full details are available
on the Sourceforge statistics page for OpenNLP.  (There are 240,000 projects hosted on SourceForge,
though this figure includes many, many projects that never actually get started: it seems
that about 7-10% of these are stable, active projects based on a review done in 2007.)
  == Rationale ==
+ OpenNLP fills a significant gap at the ASF in regards to human language processing tools.
 While Lucene/Solr, UIMA and Mahout all have some tools in this area, none of them are solely
focused on tools specifically for working with natural language like OpenNLP.
  == Initial Goals ==
  The initial goals of the proposed project are:
-  * Bring the scattered community together and make the development process transparent for
+  * Bring the community together at the ASF and make the development process transparent
for them
   * Write user documentation about all major components
   * Automated build including train and evaluate regression tests
-  * Create a new website
+  * Produce an Incubating release
  == Current Status ==
  === Meritocracy ===
