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.

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. --- Noel -----Original Message----- From: George Aroush [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Thursday, April 13, 2006 10:07 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: Adding Jeff Roderburg to Lucene.Net as a committer 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.
Contributed by dotlucene.net." 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 -----Original Message----- From: Noel J.

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. --- Noel --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com For additional commands, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com For additional commands, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
