Subject RE: Lucene.Net
Date Mon, 17 Apr 2006 02:25:47 GMT
Hi Noel,

I see that Lucene.Net has already been updated
(http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/April2006) possibly done by Erik.

In regards to the history of Lucene.Net/DotLucene, here is how it went:
May 2003: 1.3-rc1 was released by Pasha Bizhan
Dec 2003: 1.3-rc2 was released by Pasha Bizhan
Sep 2004: 1.3-rc3 was released by Pasha Bizhan
Sep 2004: 1.3-rc3 went close source and all earlier releases were removed
from SourceForge.net
Sep 2004: A new project called DotLucene was created on SourceForge.net
Sep 2004: I re-released Lucene.Net 1.3-rc3 under the project name DotLucene
on SourceForge.net
Oct 2004: 1.4-alpha of Lucene.Net was released by me
Nov 2004: 1.4-rc1 was released by me
Dec 2004: 1.4.3-beta was released by me
Jan 2005: 1.4.3-rc1 was released by me
Feb 2005: 1.4.3-final was released by me
May 2005: 1.9-beta was released by me
Feb 2006: 1.9-rc1 was released by me

As for Dan's documentation, I agree with you -- his terms are not in ASF
terms so I will say "no" to him.

Regards,

-- George

George,

Yes, a report needs to come from each project.  You can see examples in the
e-mail archives, or recent ones linked from
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/FrontPage.

If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to hear a bit of the history of Lucene.Net.
It seems that there was Lucene.Net, then it forked with one version becoming
DotLucene and another becoming closed source.  The former is what came to
here, according to the status file, but you seem to indicate that not all of
the participants have come?

I assume that when you refer to "a promotional website for DotLucene set up
by it's owner, Dan Letecky" you mean that Dan Letecky owns the site.  :-)

And I wouldn't be keen to accept his documentation under his terms.

Hi Nole,

Is the report for inclusion in this month something you need from me?  If
so, can you point me to what I need to report on, i.e.: any forms that I
have to fill.

The IP is cleaned up some time ago (as far as I know if not please advice.)
At SourceForge.net Lucene.Net (which is known as DotLucene) will no longer
be supported.  Do I need to do anything at SourceForge.net beside the
announcement that DotLucene has moved to ASF?

http://www.dotlucene.net/ is just a promotional website for DotLucene set up
by it's owner, Dan Letecky.  I sent an email to Dan asking if he wants to
contribute his documentation of Lucene.Net to ASF (which is found here:
http://www.dotlucene.net/documentation/)  His response was:

"I'm willing to contribute my documentation as long as there is a link back
to http://www.dotlucene.net on each contributed page. E.g. <p>Contributed by
<a href="http://www.dotlucene.net">dotlucene.net</a>."

I believe giving credit where it's due, but this maybe too much to ask for.
In any case, I don't know ASF policy on this regards and if this is
acceptable.  Please let me know, otherwise I will create and maintain the
documentations myself.

As for the earlier project going closed-source, that was the case with 1.2.
However, since I have taken over stating with 1.3 and now that Lucene.Net is
on ASF, I don't see it gong back to closed-source any more.

Regards,

-- George

Erik,

I'll add a +1.  And please be sure to submit the report for inclusion this
month.

For my information, I notice that the STATUS file says that this is from the
DotLucene project on SourceForge.  How are things going with IP clearance?
And will this web site: http://www.dotlucene.net/ be coming over as the
project's web site soon?

I see that an earlier Lucence.Net project went closed-source
(http://searchblackbox.com/lucene/index.html?ldn2).  The only issue I have
with them at the moment is their implication that they are THE Lucene for
.net, rather than just A compatible implementation.
