+ = Lucene Connector Framework =
+ === Description ===
+ Lucene Connector Framework is now called ManifoldCF, by vote of the ManifoldCF community,
and based on feedback from the Incubator PMC.
+ ManifoldCF 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), Meridio
(Autonomy), SharePoint (Microsoft), RSS feeds, and web content. ManifoldCF 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.
+ ManifoldCF has been in incubation since January, 2010. It was originally a planned subproject
of Lucene but is now a likely top-level project.
+ === A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation
+ 1. A 0.1 release needs to be finalized; a release candidate is currently available for the
developer community to evaluate
+ 1. We'd welcome additional active committers
+ 1. We'd welcome long-term contributions to project testing, especially for newer versions
of repository software
+ === Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? ===
+ All legal issues have be addressed to our satisfaction at this time.
+ === How has the community developed since the last report? ===
+ A book is being written, and we've had a number of extremely helpful contributions from
the field.  The active committer list is still pretty short, however.
+ === How has the project developed since the last report? ===
+ A release candidate is being evaluated.  Online documentation is now much more detailed,
and includes all javadoc as well.  Contributions assessing project performance have been made.
 Contributions evaluating use of the FileNet connector for FileNet 4.5 have also been made.
