Subject [Incubator Wiki] Trivial Update of "Lucene.Net Proposal" by TroyHoward
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2011 16:27:17 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: grammar.
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/Lucene.Net%20Proposal?action=diff&rev1=21&rev2=22

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

  
  The last year has been challenging for the project. The committers who originally lead the
project have stopped maintaining it and development has stagnated since June of 2010. The
user community has spoken out requesting a change in philosophy and direction for the project,
but those requests have been unheeded. This has led to a number of forks outside of the ASF.
We would like to bring those forks back in as branches and be responsive to the needs of community
without the need for multiple non-ASF forks.
  
- The Lucene PMC wants to see the project continue to thrive and has indicated that a return
to the Incubator is an appropriate step, with the end goal to build of building a new team
of committers and maintaining a steady release cycle meeting the previously stated goals.
Because Lucene is working to move away from being an "umbrella project", a long term goal
of the Lucene.Net project is to graduate to an ASF TLP.

  == Rationale ==
  There is great need for a search engine library in the mode of Lucene within the .NET runtime.
Individuals naturally wish to code in their language of choice. Organizations which do not
have significant Java expertise may not want to support Java strictly for the sake of running
a Lucene installation. Developers may want to take advantage of C#'s unique language features
and the .NET runtime's unique execution and interoperability model. Lucene.Net will meet all
these demands.
