The "September2011" page has been changed by KarlWright:

+ --Description--
+ 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 repository
+ connectors includes Documentum (EMC), FileNet (IBM), LiveLink
+ (OpenText), Meridio (Autonomy), SharePoint (Microsoft), JDBC, CIFS
+ file systems, CMIS repositories, RSS feeds, and web content. Output
+ support includes Solr, MetaCarta GTS, and OpenSearchServer.
+ 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. We need at least one additional active committer, as well as
+ additional users and repeat contributors
+ 2. We want to finish the current release before graduating
+ 3. We'd like to see long-term contributions for project testing,
+ especially infrastructure access
+ --Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to
+ be aware of?--
+ All issues have been addressed to our satisfaction at this time.
+ --How has the community developed since the last report?--
+ A book has been completed, and is now available in early-release form,
+ available from Manning Publishing, at
+ We have signed up a new committer in this quarter and are discussing a
+ second.  One of our mentors (Grant Ingersoll) resigned.
+ We continue to have user community interest.  We are participating
+ this year in both Apache Eurocon and Apache North America.  We've had
+ a number of extremely helpful contributions from the field, including
+ the CMIS connector and the OpenSearchServer output connector.  We have
+ started to discuss graduation from the incubator, which may come to
+ pass by the end of the year.
+ --How has the project developed since the last report?--
+ An 0.1 release was made on January 31, 2011, and a 0.2 release
+ occurred on May 17, 2011.  Another release is scheduled for September
+ 15, 2011, and will contain significant new features, including two new
+ connectors and a client scripting language.
