Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "Lucene.Net Proposal" by TroyHoward
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 00:45:44 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Lucene.Net Proposal" page has been changed by TroyHoward.
The comment on this change is: Added content regarding proposed committers and changed some
language..
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/Lucene.Net%20Proposal?action=diff&rev1=8&rev2=9

--------------------------------------------------

  
  == Current Status ==
  === Meritocracy ===
- We understand meritocracy and will fully embrace this concept in our project management
methodology. Two of the proposed initial committers, Troy Howard and Chris Currens, are both
already actively involved in other open source projects, both as committers of code and in
coordination roles. They are familiar with the challenges faced with starting and maintaining
a project over time. We also understand that opportunity is essential to an effective meritocracy
and so will remain transparent, open and actively engage the community to find new contributors,
include and review their contributions, and bring them on as committers as appropriate.
+ We understand meritocracy and will fully embrace this concept in our project management
methodology. one of the proposed committers, DIGY, has been a committer on the current Lucene.Net
project since November 2008. Prescott Nasser has been a contributor on the project, submitting
patches, documentation, and website enhancements. Two of the other proposed initial committers,
Troy Howard and Chris Currens are both already actively involved in other open source projects,
either as committers of code or in coordination roles. Troy, Chris, and Prescott are currently
committers on a Lucene.Net fork known as Lucere, and as such are intimately familiar with
the code base and share a vision for the future direction of the project.

  === Community ===
  There is already a well established, active and vibrant community surrounding the Lucene.Net
project. This is primarily a users community, as the previous committers have not engaged
the user community to find or leverage would-be contributors. There is a lot of talent available
in the community to this end.

  === Alignment ===
  Lucene.Net has been an ASF project since 2006 and has benefitted greatly from that affiliation.
We appreciate the careful oversight and structure that Apache provides which ensures that
the project stays on track and productive. We also appreciate being associated with the Lucene
TLP and the sharing that provides.

  Because we will be coming from the perspective of recovering from orphaning, we will be
strongly focused on building a community, team of committers, and process to ensure our long
term stability. We will learn from the past and not repeat the mistakes of our predecessors.
  
- Beyond that, there is significant commercial interest in this project which we believe can
be converted to direct support in terms of on-the-clock work by developers working for companies
that have software products which rely on Lucene.Net. The initial committers list includes
two such developers and we hope to attract more of them. Because we understand that commercial
support of this nature can be fickle, we will also work to diversy the team and include committers
who are personally motivated.

  We also hope to incorporate the three existing forks of Lucene.Net back into this project.
Doing so would bring a large body of reliable committers into the fold of this project (Lucere
has more than 10 active committers, Lucille and Aimee.Net are one-man projects, both of which
are very committed individuals).
