Subject RE: Adding Jeff Roderburg to Lucene.Net as a committer
Date Thu, 13 Apr 2006 14:07:07 GMT
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.
